7. Made Deal With Israel to Give Them $38 billion in Military Aid

To be sure, President Obama's relationship with the nation of Israel and its outspoken Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has often been problematic.

However, these public disagreements on settlement activity and other matters did not prevent the United States from finalizing a deal last year to give Israel $38 billion in military aid.

"The package represents a major commitment to Israel's security in the waning months of Mr. Obama's presidency after years of fractious relations with Mr. Netanyahu over issues like the Iran nuclear agreement," reported the New York Times.

"The package will provide an average of $3.8 billion a year over the next decade to Israel, already the largest recipient of American aid, including financing for missile defense systems that defend against rockets fired by groups like Hezbollah and Hamas."
