  • MSNBC anchor Johnathon Lamire tried to get former Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to label former President Donald Trump “anti-semitic.”
  • Netanyahu didn’t take the bait: “He has a Jewish son-in-law and his daughter converted to Judaism, his grandchildren are raised as Jews so I don’t think so.”
  • Netanyahu said Trump’s frustration with American Jews who don’t appreciate Israeli Jews have for Trump is understandable. “I think it reflects his frustration. It happens to many politicians when they feel they don’t get all the credit for the things they did.”
