“Americans are discouraged and frustrated by Israeli politics and the political crisis, which has prevented them for months from presenting the political part of the deal of the century,” according to senior Israeli officials who’ve spoken with their counterparts in the Trump administration, Israeli news site Ynet reports on Sunday.
“Americans are really discouraged by this situation. It creates frustration, astonishment and anger.” the officials said.
In addition, according to the officials, President Donald Trump said he was “very disappointed with Netanyahu, and talks about him negatively.”
Trump helped Netanyahu in the first round of elections, which took place in April, recognizing Israeli sovereignty on the Golan Heights and declaring Iran’s Revolutionary Guards a terror organization.
But by the second round of elections, which took place in September, Trump decided to distance himself from Netanyahu, the report says.
In a Sunday report in Yediot Ahronot, a White House source said, “The president doesn’t like losers.”
“What kind of a system is it over there?” he asked.“They are all fighting and fighting. We have different kinds of fights. At least we know who the boss is. They keep having elections and nobody is elected.”
Trump also joked that he could become prime minister in Israel.
“We work hard on Israel, I have to tell you. I think I have your approval rating of about 98 percent,” Trump said. “In fact, if anything happened here, I’m making a trip over to Israel. I’ll be prime minister there very quickly.”
