Netanyahu after debate: ‘It doesn’t matter’ who will be elected

Whether it will be Clinton or Trump who wins the upcoming U.S. national election in November, the outcome will not affect Israel, Netanyahu said.

According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel will have a friend in the White House no matter which presidential candidate wins.

The Israeli leader met separately with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump on his recent visit to New York, where he addressed the 71st United Nations General Assembly.

“Both of them talked about their support of Israel and the importance of the ties between the two countries,” Netanyahu said at the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem Tuesday morning.

“It doesn’t matter which of them will be elected,” Netanyahu stated. “The support for Israel will remain strong, the alliance will remain strong, and will even get stronger in the coming years.”
