Closed captioning of: White House: Snub of Israel PM not true
story we're looking into. it's a diplomatic story. depending on who you're listening to, it's either a major difference of opinion between
israeli prime minister
or a scheduling conflict. what can you tell me?
well, it's a little bit of both. look, the
united nations general assembly
, it comes into session. the opening session happens late they are month in new
and with both the president and
going to be in new
, the assumption was, at least on the israeli front, they would get a sit-down with the president. a lot going on with iran, things like that. apparently according to the
there was a scheduling conflict. the israelis thought they were being snubbed by not getting a one-on-one meeting. the
says we won't even be in new
the same day. they will both be there at different times, the president jumping right back on the campaign trail. that said, what did the president do last night, matt? he picked up the phone and he and
with a hundred-hour conversation, and according to the
version of the events they agreed, hey, no invitation ever asked for by the israelis, none extended and therefore non-denied. let's be realistic here. the president and
have never had a great personal relationship. this is just one more piece of evidence.
this morning. chuck, thank you very much.
