US President Donald Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House on Monday, to discuss a Middle East peace plan that has already been rejected by the Palestinians.
DW reports that “amid a heated impeachment trial and a difficult reelection campaign, Trump is devoting both Monday and Tuesday to discussing the contested plan with both Netanyahu and the Israeli premier’s rival, Benny Gantz.”
Trump said he believed both the Israeli prime minister and opposition leader Ganz would like his peace plan, which he said would be released at noon local time on Tuesday.
“I think it might have a chance,” he said, predicting that the Palestinians would also end up accepting the plan.
Netanyahu said in his turn that the plan might be the “opportunity of a century.”
But Israel’s most powerful adversary in the region, Iran, is less impressed with the US plan.
