A mic picked up a conversation between President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, and his wife, Sara, just after Air Force One landed in Tel Aviv on Monday.

The three were discussing the mainstream media in the U.S. and Israel.

Mrs. Netanyahu was heard commenting that “the majority of people in Israel, unlike the media, they love us.”

Their conversation was picked up by a microphone nearby as Trump and First Lady Melania Trump chatted with the Netanyahus, according to the Washington Post.

Trump told Mrs. Netanyahu that his wife was an admirer, prompting Mrs. Netanyahu to return the compliment.

“I talk every place about her, how great she is and how great you are,” Mrs. Netanyahu said.

“I can testify to that,” the prime minister said.

Mrs. Netanyahu then took a shot at the media and said that they hate the Netanyahus, but that the Israeli people love them.

“Because the majority of the people in Israel, unlike the media, they love us so we tell them how you are great, so they love you,” Mrs. Netanyahu said.

Trump then remarked that the two leaders have “very much in common.”

Mrs. Netanyahu then said, “we’ll talk about it at dinner.”

The Trumps and the Netanyahus will share a private dinner at the Prime Minister’s residence on Monday evening.
