Trump Presents His Middle East 'Peace Plan'

Description:

President Trump's long-awaited Middle East peace plan calls for the creation of a State of Palestine with its capital in portions of east Jerusalem.


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.

US President Donald Trump describes his Middle East peace plan as "the deal of the century".

But Palestinians call it the "Swiss cheese" plan rather than a solution for a sovereign Palestinian state.

So what will happen now?

We explore the next steps for the Middle East peace process with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, on Talk to Al Jazeera.
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.
