Anti-Trumpers want you to believe that world leaders hate the President.
They look to far-left leaders like Angela Merkel and try to make it seem like everyone agrees with her.
But one major world leader just proved them wrong by handing Trump a huge win.
Israel has always been a very close U.S. ally.
This is especially true in the Trump era because of the close relationship between the President and Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
And Netanyahu just proved his commitment to supporting the United States.
Speaking to French and German foreign ministers, Netanyahu told them there is “high probability” that President Trump is going to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal in coming weeks.
He urged them to make major changes to the deal if they want to appease President Trump.
But even with major changes, European leaders are skeptical that President Trump will stay a party to the deal that he called “one of the worst agreements the United States has made internationally.”
As reported by Axios:
“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told French and German foreign ministers who visited Jerusalem today that he predicts “with high probability” that President Trump is going to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal on May 12th and urged the Europeans to agree to significant changes in the deal, Senior Israeli officials who attended the meetings told me.
Why it matters: The European powers — Germany, France and the U.K. — have been engaged in intense negotiations with the U.S. in an attempt to reach a formula that would save the Iran deal. The Europeans believe the chances of finding a formula which will satisfy Trump are very slim.
Netanyahu said changes will be needed to three parts of the deal to keep the U.S. from killing it:
Sanctions on the Iranian ballistic missile program
Inspections of suspicious sites in Iran
A removal of the “Sunset clause” which would start to lift limitations on the Iranian nuclear program in nine years
According to the Israeli officials Netanyahu told the European foreign ministers:
“We can debate whether it (U.S. withdrawal from the deal) is a good thing or a bad thing, but it is just the reality. Then you Europeans will have to choose between the small economy of Iran and the huge economy of the U.S.”
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told Netanyahu that the current deal is better than no deal. The Israeli officials said Netanyahu replied: “The Munich agreement from 1938 was also a deal. I also want to remind you what happened to the nuclear deal with North Korea.”
French foreign minister Jean Yves Le Drian briefed Netanyahu on his recent visit to Tehran, saying he came back deeply disappointed and frustrated with the difficult position the Iranians presented regarding the European demands on the Iranian missile program and the Iranian activity in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, the Israeli officials said.”
This is yet another testament to world leaders siding with the President’s tough deal-making.
Netanyahu is similar to Trump on this front, which has brought him harsh criticism from leftists.
