Veering from U.S. policy, Trump says could live with either two-state or one-state solution

During his first press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington on Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump bucked American policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by declining to endorse the two-state solution. The president also called on the Israeli premier to restrain settlement construction and reiterated his intention to achieve a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, as well as a wider agreement between Israel and the Arab world. 

About 100 reporters from American, Israeli and international news outlets gathered in the packed East Room of the White House for the press conference, which centered on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and on the settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. WATCH:
