British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan sat down with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who called former President Trump’s reported dinner with Rapper Kanye West and Nick Fuentes “horrible” and a “big mistake.”
Morgan published an op-ed in the New York Post, titled, “Netanyahu slams Trump’s ‘horrible’ dinner with Kanye West, Nick Fuentes as a ‘big mistake,’” that details the Israeli prime minister’s comments.
“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has branded Donald Trump’s dinner with anti-Semitic rapper Kanye West and white supremacist Nick Fuentes as ‘horrible’ in a stinging new attack on the former president,” he wrote, kicking off the piece.
“In an exclusive interview with me while mass protests continue in his home country over his controversial move to control judicial power, Netanyahu said of the secret meal at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago mansion in Florida last fall: ‘I thought it was horrible. I think it’s a big mistake. It’s wrong from every point of view. It [anti-semitism] should not be countenanced, it should not be accepted, it should be rebuked and condemned and that’s what I do. And I don’t care where it comes from, or from whom,'” he asserted.

Morgan then alluded to a dust-up previously between Trump and Netanyahu after the prime minister congratulated President Biden over his win in 2020.
“His comments come after Trump attacked HIM for tweeting his congratulations to Joe Biden about his 2020 election win, branding it disloyal, and seething: ‘The first person that congratulated [Biden] was Bibi Netanyahu, the man that I did more for than any other person I dealt with. … Bibi could have stayed quiet. He made a terrible mistake. I haven’t spoken to him since. F—k him,'” Morgan recounted.
The host went on to reveal that Trump and Netanyahu made up after that with the former president congratulating him following his election win.
“He wrote me a note,” Netanyahu stated. “He congratulated on my victory.”
The conversation turned in the op-ed to Trump being a staunch supporter of Israel.
“Netanyahu once described Trump as the greatest friend Israel’s ever had in the White House and he said: ‘That’s true because he did some very good things. He moved the embassy to Jerusalem, recognized Jerusalem as our capital. Recognized our sovereignty in the Golan Heights and went out of the disastrous Iran Deal, the nuclear deal that would have paved Iran’s path to go to nuclear weapons. So yes, I appreciated it,'” Morgan wrote, quoting the prime minister.
“But some cite Netanyahu’s glowing public endorsements of Trump as one of the reasons why new polls show a worrying fall in support for Israel among Democrats, and people aged 18-29,” the journalist noted, attacking Trump and blaming the former president for some of Netanyahu’s woes. “For the first time, a majority of both now have more sympathy for Palestine than Israel.”
“America is changing vis-a-vis America,” Netanyahu responded to Morgan, “And therefore is changing vis-à-vis Israel. But I think the main bulk of the American public across the wide birth of the political spectrum support Israel because they see Israel as representing the values.”
Morgan wasn’t letting go of the issue and pressed the prime minister on it.
“But when I pushed him about falling support from Democrats and 18-29s, he admitted: ‘Well there’s a question of where that goes and whether this pendulum doesn’t swing back,'” Morgan stated, again quoting Netanyahu.
“I don’t align myself with anyone. I didn’t come in as a Republican or Democrat, I came in as an Israeli. And I have close friends among both sides of the aisle. Joe Biden, with whom I often disagree, by the way, I sometimes disagreed with Trump, too,” Netanyahu said to Morgan, not taking political sides.
Netanyahu also told Morgan that Biden had warned him not to damage democracy in Israel in a recent call between them. The host asked him what Biden said to him exactly.
“Well, first of all, we spoke about Iran security. A lot. But he raised that [concerns over threat to Israel’s democracy] and I assured him what I assured you: that Israel was, is and will remain a democracy,” Netanyahu replied.
The interview was wide-ranging as massive protests are taking place in Israel against Netanyahu currently, with radicals attempting to tie him to Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. They follow Netanyahu firing his defense minister while prepping an overhaul of Israel’s judicial system, according to the BBC.

The media outlet reported, “The reforms include plans that would give the government decisive control over the committee which appoints judges. They would also make it harder for courts to remove a leader deemed unfit for office, which has angered many who consider it in the interests of the incumbent, Benjamin Netanyahu, who faces an ongoing trial for corruption.”
“Mr. Netanyahu says the reforms are designed to stop the courts over-reaching their powers and that they were voted for by the public at the last election,” the BBC added.
