Former US President Donald Trump has strongly criticized ex Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accusing him of disloyalty, Israeli Media reported on Friday.

Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot released excerpts of two interviews that Trump gave to journalist Barak Ravid in April and July, for a book about the Middle East.

“The first person who congratulated [Joe Biden] was Bibi [Benjamin] Netanyahu, the man that I did more for than any other person I dealt with… Bibi could have stayed quiet. He has made a terrible mistake, f*** him,” Trump said.

Trump also commented on several concessions that he made to Netanyahu during his term in office, including the United States recognition of the Golan Heights as part of Israel, in March 2019.

“Take the Golan for example,” Trump said, “That was a big deal. People say that was a $10 billion gift. I did it right before the election, which helped him (Netanyahu) a lot… he would have lost the election if it wasn’t for me. So he tied. He went up a lot after I did it. He went up 10 points or 15 points after I did Golan Heights.”

Trump took several steps in support of Israel, including the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and the move of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. 

The Trump Administration also declared that the US did not consider Israeli settlements to be illegal under international law.
