President-elect Donald Trump decried current U.S. relations with Israel, urging the country to “stay strong” until he is inaugurated.

 

Trump has been a vocal critic of the recent United Nations vote to condemn Israeli settlements in disputed territories, which the U.S. did not vote for or veto.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused President Barack Obama of covertly orchestrating the vote, and stated that Israel “looks forward to working with President-elect Trump.”

"The Obama administration not only failed to protect Israel against this gang-up at the UN, it colluded with it behind the scenes," the Prime Minister’s office said in a statement reported by The Hill.  "Israel looks forward to working with President-elect Trump and with all our friends in Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, to negate the harmful effects of this absurd resolution.”

A senior Israeli official told CNN Wednesday that Israel will provide Trump with evidence that the U.S. worked in secret to help the settlement vote.
