Trump on Middle East peace: 'We will get it done'

Trump on Middle East peace: 'We will get it done'

"Mr. President, I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace", Abbas claimed.

"I will do whatever is necessary to facilitate the agreement, to mediate, to arbitrate, anything they'd like to do - but I'd love to be a mediator, or an arbitrator or a facilitator, and we will get this done", Mr. Trump said.

That move would likely spark Palestinian fury and is privately seen by many in the Israel and USA security establishments as needlessly inflammatory. Abbas ended his remarks by addressing Trump directly and telling him in English - "with you Mr. President, we now have hope". "I believe that we are capable under your leadership and your stewardship - your courageous stewardship and your wisdom, as well as your great negotiating ability - that we can be partners, true partners, to you to bring about a historic peace treaty", Abbas said.

"We are the only remaining people in the world who still live under occupation", he added, eliciting no verbal or facial response from Trump. "We will get it done", Trump confidently told Abbas.

Trump called on Palestinians to renounce violence and to unite both Fatah and Hamas to negotiate with Israel. "And in that, I also believe that we will be able to resolve the issue of the refugees and the issue of the prisoners", Abbas said.

Evangelist Franklin Graham lashed out on Twitter Monday night at MTV's first gender-neutral acting awards. The first award presenter was Asia Kate Dillon, the first gender non-binary character on television.

"For us to bring about a comprehensive and just peace based on the two-state solution, such matter would give a great impetus to the Arab Peace Initiative and the other global initiatives, as well as be able to fight and deter terrorism and to fight the criminal ISIS group ... which has nothing to do with our noble religion", he said.

Abbas also said "peace" would allow Israel an opportunity to normalize ties with the Arab states.

Barely two and a half months after having received Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the USA president greeted Abbas on the White House lawn, before ushering him into the Oval Office for their talks.

Netanyahu visited the White House in February.

"Over my lifetime, I've heard the toughest deal to make is peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians".

Still no verdict for Florida ex-congresswoman's fraud trial
Brown, who represented parts of north and central Florida until leaving office in January, had pleaded not guilty all charges. She said she should have paid more attention and been involved with the dealings of her professional and personal finances.

Less than an hour earlier at a joint press conference Trump promised, "We will get this done".

"It's about time for Israel to end its occupation of our people and of our land after 50 years", Abbas said.

President Donald Trump offered a warm welcome to Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority (PA), on Wednesday at a joint White House appearance prior to their closed-door discussions. Vice President Mike Pence, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were all slated to join the talks alongside the USA special representative for global negotiations, Jason Greenblatt.
