Netanyahu scrambles to reset ties with Democrats after best ever relations with Trump

​Ben Caspit spoke with Israeli-American businessman and philanthropist Haim Saban, who is hailing Joe Biden’s victory.

Still he notes that a small minority within the Democratic party ("the squad”), which has a different approach on Israel, has grown stronger and louder after the last elections.
