The media attributed the move to Netanyahu’s attempt to distance himself from his once closest ally, who is facing impeachment.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid the political scandal surrounding U.S. President Donald Trump has deleted a joint photo with him, which he had long used as a cover for his Twitter account, Reuters reported.
The agency notes that for a long time, the header of the official account of the Israeli leader had a photo with the U.S. president — a kind of symbol of friendship between politicians. During Hanukkah, the photo was replaced by a themed image. After the holiday, Netanyahu again posted a joint photo with Trump, but in the company of foreign ministers from the UAE and Bahrain. On Tuesday morning, Trump disappeared again from the Israeli prime minister’s page: the cover of Netanyahu’s official account now features a photo of the politician getting a coronavirus shot.
Netanyahu’s page offers no explanation for Trump’s disappearance from his Twitter account. The agency attributed the move to Netanyahu’s attempt to distance himself from his once closest ally, who is facing impeachment over last week’s Capitol riots.
Earlier, it was reported that Trump was banned from more than a dozen social media sites and platforms. Specifically, Trump got banned from Facebook, Twitter, Google, Spotify, Snapchat, Instagram, Shopify, Reddit, Twitch, YouTube, TikTok, and Pinterest.
