Gibbs: Bibi-Obama Relationship ‘Will Be Very Challenging’

Former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs predicted that the relationship between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “will be very challenging” on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.

“I think the two countries, again, have a fairly indispensable relationship. They’re — they have big, big mutual understandings, a lot on the line in terms of foreign policy…I think this is a relationship between the president and the prime minister that you could actually see getting worse in the next few weeks, if an Iran deal comes through, before it ever has a chance to get better. I think it will be very challenging, despite the fact that there are a lot of things that are mutually important to both countries as it relates to foreign policy” Gibbs stated.
