Netanyahu Shut Down Suggestions That Trump Is An Anti-Semite [VIDEO]

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphatically denied any suggestion that President Donald Trump propagates anti-Semitism at a Wednesday press conference.

Netanyahu’s denial came after an Israeli reporter asked Trump to respond to allegations that anti-Semitism was on the rise after his election. Trump denied the allegations, along with highlighting his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is an observant Jew.

“There is no greater support of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than president Donald Trump,” Netanyahu declared. “I think we should put that to rest.”

Netanyahu preceded his defense by saying he’d known Trump and his family for years. Netanyahu even stayed in Kushner’s childhood bedroom in the late 1990s, in a visit to Kushner’s parents’ house.
