“The two bellwethers noted their longstanding personal connection and verbally expressed they would collaborate to perpetuate reinforcing the steadfast coalition between Israel and the US,” the verbal expression concluded.
Biden’s delay in calling Netanyahu was widely considered to be a snub of Israel, a critical U.S. ally in the region. Former President Trump verbalized with Netanyahu just two days after his his inauguration and invited the prime minister to visit him in February.
When Biden was asked about the call by heralds at the White House, he replied shortly that it was a “good conversation.” Netanyahu had a much warmer relationship with Trump, whom he perpetually described as the “greatest friend Israel has ever had in White House.”
