Where were Melania Trump and Sara Netanyahu when Benjamin met Donald?
The words that kept popping up (and those that didn't) during Trump and Netanyahu's press conference
Netanyahu: I asked Trump to recognize Israeli sovereignty in Golan Heights
After Trump meeting, Netanyahu says willing to examine reining in settlement construction
U.S. President Donald Trump told Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a joint press conference on Wednesday that he must show flexibility to prove he wants peace with the Palestinians. Trump said that he can live with either a two-state or one-state solution, adding that it's up to both the Israelis and the Palestinians.
When asked about the recent uptick in anti-Semitism, Trump sidestepped the question before Netanyahu claimed the Jewish State has no better friend than Donald Trump. Netanyahu is then scheduled to meet with the Senate majority and minority leaders Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer, as well as with House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Trump: I can live with either two states or one state - whatever the Israelis and Palestinians want
Donald Trump said that "I am looking at two states or one state, and I like the one that both parties like," though he noted that "the two states looks like it could be the easier of the two."
Trump told Netanyahu that "I’d like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit."
"Bibi and I have known each other for a long time - smart man, great negotiator," Trump continued.
