ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at President Obama Saturday, accusing him of a "shameful ambush" at the U.N. over West Bank settlements.

Netanyahu also said he is looking forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump.

His comments came one day after the U.S. allowed the United Nations Security Council to condemn Israeli settlements in the West Bank and east Jerusalem. 

Trump condemned the U.N. vote and said he will support Israel when he takes office.

Mississippi Republican State Senator Chris McDaniel said he is confident president-elect Trump will reach out to Israel and project strength, rather than weakness.

"That strength is what brings peace to the Middle East," said McDaniel, of Ellisville, who represents District 42. "Every time we equivocate, every time we show weakness, we invite a challenge. I don't think Trump's going to show that weakness, particularly in regards to Israel."        

"Barack Obama was a nightmare, particularly in foreign relations," McDaniel also said. "He lost the trust of many nations, he projected weakness to many nations."  

On Friday, McDaniel hosted his 11th annual turkey giveaway at West Ellisville Baptist Church.
