Well, this is unusual to say the least.
After the United States chose to not utilize it's veto power in a vote at the United Nations last Friday to prevent the passage of a United Nations Security Council resolution criticizing Israeli settlements, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted his outrage over the US position.
We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2016
not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2016
Today, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted: “President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support for Israel!” Netanyahu included in the tweet Israeli and U.S. flags, plus he tagged two of Trump’s children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
Note: This all comes as a criminal probe has been launched in Israel against Netanyahu.
It's odd that a head of state would include the children in that they are supposedly not officially involved in the upcoming Trump administration, and Don Jr. in particular is slated to run The Trump Organization. #conflictofinterest
Others in the Twitterverse took note as well:
Most notable part of this tweet is that he tags Donald Trump Jr., who is supposed to be operating the Trump Organization https://t.co/1MpHml9nXT— Judd Legum (@JuddLegum) December 28, 2016
Eric must have major FOMO right about now https://t.co/kIKK1SXcrY— Yasmeen Serhan (@YasmeenSerhan) December 28, 2016
You have to wonder if Eric Trump feels a bit left out...
