Blue and White leader Yair Lapid slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, saying that he “wrecked our relations with Democrats and US Jews” on social media.

“The America you know,” Lapid added, “is not the America of today… we could work with US President [Donald] Trump just as well as you can.”

Lapid further slammed Israel’s ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, saying that “there hasn’t been an ambassador who has caused more damage to Israeli-American relations.”

Netanyahu denied reports that Dermer will be leaving his post soon due to the refusal of the Civil Service Commission to extend his service, saying on Sunday that he will make sure to extend Dermer's leadership role.
