President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and their wives immediately bonded on Monday over their disdain for the media.

Standing on the tarmac at Ben-Gurion Airport shortly after the Trumps' arrival in Israel from Saudi Arabia, the foursome were making small talk as a microphone picked up their banter.

The majority of people in Israel love us, unlike the media, Sara Netanyahu told the visiting couple.  "So we tell them how you are great, and they love you," she said.

The president responded: "We have something very much in common."

Netanyahu added that it sounded familiar, before his wife said: "Very much in common, we will talk about it at dinner… the same media."
