Business magnate and Trump Organization CEO Donald Trump argued that the Obama administration “treats our known enemies better than Israel” because it doesn’t like Israel or its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and, and that “there has never been a greater enemy to Israel than Barack Obama” in an interview broadcast on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel.
Trump started by criticizing the state of the US economy, and the US’s standing in the world, saying “we’re the policemen, but our leader is not respected and our country is no longer respected…we’re not a respected country.” And “in history, it’s never been like this, not one country do we get along with anymore.”
The discussion then turned to Israel, where Trump declared, “probably, maybe from the beginning there has never been a greater enemy to Israel than Barack Obama. It’s incredible the way he treats them, the way he’s speaking to them. I think he treats our known enemies much better.” And “they don’t like him and they don’t like Israel…he’s the worst thing that has ever happened to Israel now what’s going to happen, is, the way it’s going Iran will have a nuclear weapon, and it’s very close. As soon as that happens it’s a whole new ball game.”
When he was asked about the 2016 election, Trump re-iterated his previous point that Mitt Romney should not run, but added “we’ve had enough Bushes.”
