Likud MKs to attend Trump inauguration

Likud lawmakers Yehudah Glick and Sharren Haskel say they are going to the inauguration of US President-elect Donald Trump in Washington on Friday.

Haskel says during the trip the two right-wing MKs will meet with Evangelical Christian groups, US politicians and others and work on forging ties with the new administration.

The two also defend the dancing and singing of “Bibi, king of Israel” that greeted Benjamin Netanyahu as he entered the Likud faction meeting hours ago.

Both say they are waiting for the results of criminal investigations into the prime minister’s actions.

“We need to give him backing,” Glick says.

Rumors have swirled in recent days that some Likud members are beginning to prepare for the possibility Netanyahu will be forced out of office.
