Democratic Rep.: Israel Is Using Obama to Get ‘Everything They Want’ from Trump

A Democratic member of Congress thinks that Israel’s reaction to the U.N. resolution is partly borne of a hope they have that Donald Trump will give them “exactly what they want.”

McDermott said on MSNBC today that he sees “the beginning of a war on the American government” right now with the “innuendos” and “campaign of anxiety production” over the U.N. resolution on settlements.

He also made the strong allegation that Israel is trying to exploit this situation to get better treatment from Trump:

“They never could get 100 percent out of Barack Obama so they decided to attack him and use him as the reason for why Trump should come in and give them everything they want. They’re running their own war against us and our policies.”
