President Trump officially congratulated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayahu Wednesday afternoon for his re-election, marking his fifth term.
"U.S. President Donald Trump called to congratulate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his victory in the election, from Air Force One. President Trump warmly congratulated Prime Minister Netanyahu and the people in Israel," Netanyahu tweeted.
President Trump was pleased to see a MAGA flag being waived at Netanyahu's victory party last night.
Netanyahu was officially declared the winner of the election against Benny Gantz on Wednesday afternoon. Exit polling showed the two rivals down to the wire until late into the night.
