US President Donald Trump on Tuesday reposted an Instagram post from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s account of a billboard hanging over the Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv.
The image depicts the two leaders smiling at one another as they shake hands. The slogan reads, “Netanyahu: In a different league.”
Trump shared the photo on his official Instagram account and, as evident from the bottom right corner of the post, directly reposted it from Netanyahu's account, including the Hebrew caption. The post gathered over 100,000 likes so far and more than 3000 comments, raising concerns about election interference.
“My name is Donald Trump, and I’m a big fan of Israel,” he said, with the label “Donald Trump: Entrepreneur” at the bottom of the screen.
“And frankly, a strong prime minister is a strong Israel, and you truly have a great prime minister in Benjamin Netanyahu – there’s nobody like him,” Trump added. “He’s a winner, he’s highly respected, he’s highly thought of by all and people really do have great, great respect for what’s happening in Israel.
“So vote for Benjamin, terrific guy, terrific leader, great for Israel,” Trump concluded.
