"He betrayed me, damn him," Trump said in an interview with journalist Barak Ravid, referring to Netanyahu.
The former US president’s description of Benjamin Netanyahu as treason came against the background of Netanyahu’s congratulations to Biden after the elections were decided, and it became clear that Biden would be president of the United States.
Former US President Donald Trump added that he believed former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu treated him with treachery and cajoling, despite everything he had done for him during his four years in the White House.
"I haven't spoken to him since the US election," Trump said.
Trump continued the attack: "I was disappointed with Bibi on a personal level," and said, "I loved Bibi and still love him. But I also love loyalty. The first person to congratulate Biden was Bibi, he could sit quietly."
Hours after Biden was declared the winner of the US election, Netanyahu, then prime minister, tweeted a congratulatory message to the president-elect, adding, "He expects to work with Biden to strengthen the special alliance between the United States and Israel." A few weeks later the two had a phone call.
Former President Trump and former Prime Minister Netanyahu had a warm and close relationship. The most important of them is the conclusion of the Abrahamic agreements, according to which Israel, the Emirates and Bahrain normalized their relations and established diplomatic relations.
