& Benjamin Netanyahu
President Trump quieted a group of reporters and photographers down after a press briefing with Netanyahu to announce "Just so you understand, I never mentioned the word or the name 'Israel', never mentioned it, during that conversation. They're all saying I did, so you have another story wrong." Problem is the press never accused him of that and Netanyahu was clearly uncomfortable standing next to Trump in that moment.
