U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Wednesday that President Donald Trump's reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Va. "was not fine."

Friedman was asked by a reporter for Israel's Channel 10 news station if he thought Trump's comment after the white supremacist rally was "fine."

He said, "I think that it was not fine," but declined to say more about it. He did add that Trump "is being treated unfairly by the media. I think he'll do a great job for America."

Haaretz notes that Friedman drew criticism during the presidential campaign, when he was Trump's chief adviser on Israel, after he called supporters of the liberal Jewish group J Street "far worse than Kapos," Jews who collaborated with Nazis.
