      Billionaire Donald Trump says his of Binyamin Netanyahu on YouTube was Netanyahu's idea.

      Trump told Shalom TV that Netanyahu called and asked if he would "do an ad or a statement" to support his campaign in Tuesday's Israeli parliamentary election.

      “I said absolutely,” said Trump. “They sent a crew in from Israel.”

      The tycoon said in Friday's interview that Netanyahu is a "great man and a great prime minister."

      The video was funded and produced by JDPR, an Israeli public relations firm owned by Jonny Daniels, an immigrant from England who has also worked with conservative Likud MK Danny Danon.

      Daniels had claimed that the video was his idea. Trump's statement appears to contradict that claim.
