Trump announces Middle East peace plan, 2-state solution
U.S. President Donald Trump announces his Middle East peace proposal alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The plan calls for the creation of a State of Palestine with its capital in portions of East Jerusalem, and more than doubles territory under Palestinian control
President Trump's new Middle East peace plan is making its way around the world, winning praise and support from some parts of Europe. One America's Jack Posobiec sat down with Hungary's foreign minister to learn more. U.S. presidents have struggled to resolve conflict in the Middle East since the Palestinian Liberation Organization was founded in 1964 to undo the map settled on after WWII. One America's Neil W. McCabe spoke to a scholar of Middle East geopolitics about why President Trump's plan is different from past attempts. In a speech before the United Nations Security Council, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas urged President Trump to disavow his Mideast peace plan and seek a return to negotiations based on existing UN resolutions. Those resolutions call for a two-state solution broadly following pre-1967 borders. For more we turn to CGTN's Stephanie Freid in Tel Aviv. The EU's foreign policy chief
criticized the peace plan as endorsing Israeli territorial expansion at the expense of a viable Palestinian state.
