Trump doesn't rule out cutting aid to Israel --The ex-president has grown more critical of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since leaving office | 30 April 2024 | Former U.S. President Donald Trump has refused to rule out withholding military aid to Israel to force an end to the war in Gaza. Once a stalwart defender of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump now argues that the Israeli leader and his military have bungled the war with Hamas. In an interview with Time magazine published on Tuesday, Trump stood by his insistence last month that Israel should "finish up [its] war" before it loses any more international support. "I think that Israel has done one thing very badly: public relations," Trump told the outlet, adding that he thinks the Israeli military shouldn't "be sending out pictures every night of buildings falling down and being bombed." [Or, better yet, don't bomb the buildings and they won't fall down.]
