(PatriotWise.com)- Former President Donald Trump reportedly cut ties and ended his positive relationship with former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after he congratulated former Vice President Joe Biden for “winning” the 2020 presidential election.
Reports suggest that Trump expressed his anger at Netanyahu for his congratulatory message to Biden to an Axios writer, stating “F*ck him.”
Congratulations @JoeBiden and @KamalaHarris. Joe, we’ve had a long & warm personal relationship for nearly 40 years, and I know you as a great friend of Israel. I look forward to working with both of you to further strengthen the special alliance between the U.S. and Israel.

Speaking to Barak Ravid, the author of “Trump’s Peace: The Abraham Accords and the Reshaping of the Middle East,” Trump described his close personal and working relationship with the then-Prime Minister of Israel during his first term in office.
I have an Announcement: I wrote a book. It's called "Trump's peace: The Abraham Accords and the Reshaping of the Middle East. On Monday, @axios will release a new season of the “How it Happened” podcast based on my book. Subscribe herehttps://t.co/VQylylQz7h pic.twitter.com/HhSxFcw2Gk

“He was very early, like, earlier than most,” he said of his congratulations to Biden. “I haven’t spoken to him since.”
Trump added that Netanyahu “could have stayed quiet” and that he “made a terrible mistake.”
Reports also suggest that while Trump said he had a positive relationship with Netanyahu during his time in office, he now believes that the former Israeli PM didn’t want peace with the Palestinians and was “using” the United States to deal with Iran.
What could this mean for the future? Well, with former President Donald Trump reportedly considering a fresh run for the White House in 2024, and with Netanyahu working to regain his seat as Prime Minister of Israel, the two former world leaders could find themselves in office and working together again – although next time around, the relationship may not be quite as strong.
After working hard to achieve peace in the Middle East with the Abraham Accords, what might happen post-2024?
