Netanyahu Uses 15-Story Posters Of Trump, Putin For Election Ad
The Likud party’s new election campaign involves giant posters of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posing with President Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Three sides of Likud’s 15-story headquarters in Tel Aviv feature a photo of Netanyahu with each world leader. A Likud spokeswoman told the Post that there would be no poster on the fourth side “for now.”
The Likud posters said that Netanyahu was “in another league” from his competition. The liberal opposition party Blue and White responded with its own ads claiming Netanyahu is “in another league in surrendering to terror.”
The posters also caused a protest on Sunday by forty Russian-speaking Israelis who were upset by Netanyahu promoting his ties to Putin.
