Shortly before he is to be sworn in as US president, a majority of Israelis expect Donald Trump’s attitude toward Israel to be “friendly,” while most of them think Barack Obama’s during his tenure was not, according to a poll published on Tuesday.
 
The poll published in Times of Israel found that 69 percent of Jewish Israelis believe the attitude toward Israel of the incoming president will be “very friendly” or “moderately friendly,” with that number rising to 74% among the Arab public.
 
Fifty-seven percent of Jewish Israelis said Obama has been “moderately unfriendly” or “not friendly at all,” with only 11% or Arab Israelis sharing that belief.
 
Conversely, 22% of the Jewish public said the outgoing president had been friendly while 64% or Arab Israelis said the same.
