Some settler leaders said to call for resignation of official who berated Trump

Some settler leaders are calling for David Elhayani to step down after the head of the Yesha umbrella council said US President Donald Trump is not a friend of Israel, Channel 13 reports.

According to the TV network, a fight broke out in an internal WhatsApp group of settler leaders after Elhayani made the comments to the Haaretz daily, in protest of the Trump peace plan.

At least two local council leaders, who are not named, berated him and called for him to resign, while others came to his defense, the report says.
