Trump says two states not only answer to Israel-Palestinian conflict

US President Donald Trump said Wednesday he was open to a one state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict if it is acceptable to both sides.

“I’m looking at two state and one state, and I like the one that both parties like. I’m very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one,” Trump said at a press conference welcoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House.

“I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two, but honestly, if Bibi and if the Palestinians — if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I’m happy with the one they like the best,” he said.
