President Trump said Wednesday that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reelection victory increases the chances for a Mideast peace deal.
“Everybody said you can’t have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians,” President Trump told reporters at the White House. “I think we have a chance and I think we have now a better chance with Bibi having won.”
Earlier Wednesday, White House national security adviser John Bolton said the administration will put out its plan “in the very near future.”
“That opens all kinds of prospects. Then the struggle against Iran’s efforts to subvert peace and security in the region continues. And Netanyahu will play a big, big part in that, along with President Trump,” Bolton told conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt.
