The U.N. Security Council and Israel

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly reaching out to President-elect Donald Trump and the U.S. Congress in order to prevent the Obama administration from what the Israeli government fears is an American attempt to have the U.N. Security Council pass more resolutions against Israel by approving principles for a Palestinian state, The Times of Israel reports.

This comes after the Netanyahu government was angered that the Security Council on Friday condemned Israel’s settlement activities when the US failed to veto the resolution."

We only have one president, but it looks like he is attempting to make things difficult for President elect Trump with last minute actions. Netanyahu has publicly blamed Obama for the resolution’s passing.
