Lapid accuses Netanyahu of shunning US Democrats

Opposition Leader Yair Lapid accuses Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of making serious mistakes in the way he related the US Democratic Party, adding that he, Lapid, keeps close contact with the party.

He says US President-elect Joe Biden will be cordial with Netanyahu but the rest of the party will not forget how the premier behaved.

Lapid also says he is learning from Biden’s team how to organize and run an election campaign during the pandemic. He says that as soon as possible, he and his campaign staff will be back in towns and cities nationwide, going door to door “as the Biden people did.”
