PM: MKs should stay out of internal American politics

MK Danny Danon should not have attended a recent internal American political event, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said in an interview with CNN on Friday.
Asked about the deputy Knesset speaker's participation in the event and "effective endorsement" of an American Republican presidential candidate, Netanyahu said, "I don't like this either."The back-and-forth followed a question posed to the prime minister about whether he thinks US President Barack Obama "threw Israel under the bus," to which he answered, "I'm not going to get into internal American politics."
Saying he had no prior knowledge about Danon's participation in the US political event, Netanyahu said that if he had known, "I would have told him to stay out of American politics."
