The results are in and it’s a HUGE win for Trump friend and ally Benjamin Netanyahu!
Take a look:
The polls closed for Israel’s elections Tuesday night, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is claiming a victory after exit polls show the race too close to call.
The Associated Press called the election Wednesday morning at 3:05 a.m. local time in Tel Aviv.
Late Tuesday and into early Wednesday in Tel Aviv, Netanyahu claimed victory before his supporters.
"The right-wing bloc led by Likud won a clear victory. I thank the citizens of Israel for their trust," Netanyahu said on DW.com. “I will begin forming a right-wing government with our natural partners tonight."
Netanyahu vowed to create a right-wing nationalist government, according to AP.
“I was very moved that the nation of Israel once again entrusted me for the fifth time, and with even greater trust,” Netanyahu said.
