Alan Dershowitz charged Wednesday that President Barack Obama deceived him during a meeting in which Obama promised the Harvard law professor the United States would "always have Israel's back."

In an interview on "The Kelly File," Dershowitz – who wrote a stinging rebuke of the Obama administration for refusing to block an anti-Israel initiative – said he was invited by the president to sit down with him before President-elect Donald Trump took office.

"He called me into the Oval Office for a half an hour, and he assured me that he would always have Israel's back," he said. "He obviously wanted my support, wanted me to express my support to voters, which I did."

"His plan was – who knows whether he was deceiving me at the time or whether he changed his mind," he continued. "I don't know what basis he would have for changing his mind. But I can tell you he deceived me."

Dershowitz added that the United States has to "use its economic leverage" to turn the United Nations "into an authentic forum."

"There are automatic votes against Israel on every issue," he charged. "Israel is condemned more than all the other countries in the world combined. Syria is murdering people, the Russians are taking over the Ukraine and all anybody can talk about is Israel making settlements."
