Trump Sides With Turkey Over Israel In Unexpected Twitter Showdown

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted the following message on Twitter earlier today:

I was just exposed to the daily trolling of the anti-Semitic dictator Erdogan.

He is obsessed with Israel. He knows what a moral army is and he knows what a genuine democracy is, as opposed to an army that massacres women and children in Kurdish villages and a state which, to my regret, is becoming more dictatorial day by day.

He is obsessed with Israel. But there has been an improvement. Erdogan used to attack me every two hours and now it is every six hours.

Coincidentally enough (or not?), just a little over two hours later, President Donald Trump tweeted about his recent conversation with Turkish President Erdogan:

I just had a long and productive call with President @RT_Erdogan of Turkey. We discussed ISIS, our mutual involvement in Syria, & the slow & highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops from the area. After many years they are coming home. We also discussed heavily expanded Trade.

As of the posting of this article, there has been no mention of either Israel or Netanyahu by Trump since his tweet about Erdogan.
