Andrea Mitchell: Netanyahu Gave a ‘Triple Slam’ to Obama

Monday on MSNBC, NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell said during a joint press conference with President Donald Trump in Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used the occasion to do a “triple-slam against former President Obama.”

Mitchell said, “I think one of the most notable things, though, was that Prime Minister Netanyahu was so confrontational in his remarks. He took a real slap at Barack Obama by saying that he was congratulating, praising President Trump for his new policy on Iran, for his retaliation against Assad on chemicals, something that as we know, President Obama did not do, and for reasserting American leadership, U.S. leadership in the Middle East. So that was a triple-slam against former President Obama. You don’t usually hear that from a foreign leader.”
