ISRAELI PM BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS DONALD TRUMP IS A FRIEND TO HIS COUNTRY AND HE WILL WORK WELL WITH HIM, THIS SUNDAY ON "60 MINUTES"

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he's never been as hopeful about Israel's place in the world as he is now, and that he welcomes the presidency of Donald Trump. Netanyahu speaks to Lesley Stahl in an interview to be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, Dec. 11 (7:00-8:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"I know him very well," Netanyahu tells Stahl. "And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is very clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state and about Jewish people. There's no question about that."

Netanyahu has served the longest stretch as prime minister in Israel's history. He optimistically says he expects U.S.-Israel relations to grow stronger under a Trump administration.

Netanyahu and Stahl also discussed the prime minister's rocky relationship with President Obama, which hit bottom when Netanyahu lobbied against the Iran nuclear deal in a speech before Congress.

Netanyahu says it wasn't personal. "You think I wouldn't stand up against the Iran deal if I thought, as I did, that it endangers the existence of Israel? Of course I would."

Transcript:

NETANYAHU: I know Donald Trump. I know him very well. And I think his attitude, his support for Israel is very clear. He feels very warmly about the Jewish state, about the Jewish people and about Jewish people. There's no question about that.

STAHL: With Trump, do you think Israel will not be as at odds with the United States as you have been under the Obama administration?

NETANYAHU: Yeah, we had differences of opinion with - I had differences of opinion with President Obama, and most well-known, of course, was Iran.

STAHL: Was it personal between the two of you?

NETANYAHU: No. No, I don't think so. I think that suppose we had the greatest of personal chemistry, okay? So what? You think I wouldn't stand up against the Iran deal if I thought, as I did, that it endangers the existence of Israel? Of course I would.
