Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s “interference” in US affairs is ‘unprecedented,’ US President Barack Obama asserted during an interview which will air in full tonight, Arutz Sheva reports.
Speaking to CNN interviewer Fareed Zakaria, Obama addressed tensions between himself and his Israeli counterpart over the Iran nuclear deal, arguing that Netanyahu’s opposition to the deal is wrong.
Zakaria asked Obama if it was “appropriate of a foreign head of government to inject himself into an American affair” to the extent Netanyahu has, and if he could recall similar conduct by another foreign head of state.
Obama tried to dodge the question, suggesting that Zakaria should pose his query directly to Netanyahu. Obama did, however, note that he could not “recall a similar example.”
