When Trump asked Netanyahu about ‘Sleepy Joe’

During the joint phone call between US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Sovereign Council president General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and civilian leader and Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, Netanyhau spoke about “enthusiasm from most countries in the world, for most people in the world, across the political divide”.

“Yeah, Iran is unhappy”, Netanyahu added, “Hezbollah is unhappy. Hamas is unhappy, but most everybody else is very happy. They should be because peace is a group thing. It’s a very good thing. So if you ask me, “What does it feel like? It’s amazing and it’s fast.”

President Trump then said: “They’re also poor. Iran is poor. Hamas is poor. They’re all poor. They weren’t poor three years ago. They were blowing everything up. They’re very poor”.

Then Trump related to his political opponent and asked Netanyahu: “Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal, BB, Sleepy Joe? Do you think he would’ve made this deal somehow? I don’t think so”.

Netanyahu paused and answered: “Well, Mr. President, one thing I can tell you, is we appreciate it the help for peace from anyone in America. We appreciate what you’ve done enormously”.

In his statement during the joint phone call, Trump praised the current relationship with Israel. “I want to thank the leaders of Sudan. I want to thank you very much for being with us”, Trump said and then referred to Israel’s Prime Minister with his first name, “And of course, Benjamin, for the incredible work you do constantly. We’ve had a tremendous relationship”.

“There’s never been a relationship where Israel and the United States were so close”, Trump emphasized and added a comment which was most probably referring to the previous administration led by President Barak Obama: “And I would say a few years ago, there’s probably never been a time when it was so far apart, so distant, if you want to know the truth”.
