‘We have very much in common’: Trump and Netanyahu share press gripes
US President Donald Trump and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wasted no time in griping about their common enemy when they met on the tarmac of Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport – the ‘fake news’ media.

Donald and Melania Trump were greeted by Netanyahu and his wife Sara upon their arrival in the city Monday.

The ‘first couples’ huddled together as Mrs Netanyahu reportedly claimed that, “like the Trumps”, they are loved by the people but not the media.

In an exchange captured by a live microphone, Sara told the Trumps how much she loves Melania, saying she speaks highly of her everywhere. She then adds: “Because the majority of the people in Israel, unlike the media, they love us. So we tell them how you are great, and they love you.”

Trump interjects, “We have something very much in common.”

The couples are dining together this evening at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.

Trump often voices his distrust of the mainstream media and previously labelled large organizations, such as CNN, “fake news.”

In January, Netanyahu accused the Israeli media of trying to oust him from office after reporting details of corruption allegations.
