Netanyahu was eagerly expecting to bask in the glow of Trump’s triumph. Not only would he showcase his extraordinarily close ties to the U.S. president, he could expect wavering voters to draw the proper analogy between Netanyahu’s legal affairs and Trump’s onslaught against the “witch hunt” he claims is after him.
