President Reuven Rivlin on Sunday criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for election day comments in which he tried to get out the vote for his Likud party by warning of droves of Arab citizens being bussed to the polls.

"The President's Residence put out a call for all of the citizens of Israel to come and vote. Everyone must be careful in their comments, especially those that the entire world hears," Rivlin said.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest addressed Netanyahu’s comments about Arab voters on Wednesday, saying that the US and the Obama administration were “deeply concerned” about rhetoric that “seeks to marginalize Israeli citizens.”
