President Trump Is Confident That Israel And Palestine Will Find Peace

President Trump hosted Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the White House on Wednesday, and promised to do "whatever is necessary" to help reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement.

Trump met with Abbas in the Oval Office earlier on Wednesday (3 May). "I applaud them", he said, "they get unbelievably well together".

"Instead, Trump and his team should focus on incremental steps to improve the situation on the ground, preserve the possibility of the two-state solution at another time, and set conditions for negotiations in the future".

Abbas said that Palestinians are raising their children in a "culture of peace", and that he aspires to a day when Palestinian children can grow up in a secure, peaceful and free environment.

The victim's injuries were so severe some internal organs had to be removed. The abuse "had been going on for years", he added.

Mr Trump also said the two leaders would discuss economic opportunities for the people of Palestine through private sector development in the region, but that no lasting peace would be achieved "unless Palestinian leaders speak in a unified voice". He then called on Abbas to act against incitement and hatred, saying that "hopefully there won't be such hatred for very long". It said USA and Israeli officials have declined to confirm the trip.

Speaking after the US President finished his statement, Abbas thanked Trump for his invitation and looked forward with working with the White House. We need two willing parties. "I'd like to see you hold back on settlements for a little bit", Trump told Netanyahu, even though the Israeli leader said he doesn't see settlements as the "core of the problem".

Trump, in complete contrast, made clear throughout his brief remarks that he regards Abbas as a central, viable part of the solution.

"We believe that we are capable and able to bring about success to our efforts", Abbas said. White House spokesman Sean Spicer said the president expressed concerns over the issue in private discussions. USA officials said such a request was raised in preparatory talks with Palestinian officials, and three Republican senators urged a halt to such payments in a letter to Trump that reflected widespread opinion in Congress.

Whether Trump follows up with pressure on Israel using the vast leverage America has over Israel remains to be seen, however.

Many of Trump's predecessors have tried to mediate the decadeslong conflict.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal might not be as hard as people have thought, called on Congress to extend school choice to "millions more children" and was set to have dinner with religious leaders in the evening.

But Trump added that any agreement "cannot be imposed by the United States, or by any other nation". Israel has been skeptical of a UN-promoted solution that would allow for peaceful co-existence of an Israeli and a Palestinian states.
