'It's a plan that really would work,' Trump said. He added that the White House will release the secretive deal 'a little bit prior' to the meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his chief political rival, Benjamin Gantz in Washington.
President Donald Trump will discuss his still-secret Middle East peace plan next week with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and rival Benjamin Gantz.Benjamin Netanyahu and his chief political rival, Benjamin Gantz. “It’s a great plan. It’s a plan that really would work,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One as he traveled to Florida. He said the White House will release the secretive deal"a little bit prior" to the meeting with Netanyahu and Gantz in Washington. That unusual session, set for Tuesday, comes as Israel lurches toward a third election on March 2, which will pit Netanyahu's conservative Likud party against Gantz's more centrist Blue and White party. Israeli voters have twice failed to give either faction a clear majority, leading to an unprecedented third showdown. Vice President Mike Pence first confirmed next week's visit during a trip to Jerusalem on Thursday. Pence made it clear they were not initially planning to invite Gantz, the former head of Israel's military. "President Trump asked me to extend an invitation to Prime Minister Netanyahu to come to the White House next week to discuss regional issues, as well as the prospect of peace here in the Holy Land," Pence said. "At the prime minister’s suggestion, I also extended an invitation to Benny Gantz, the leader of the Blue and White Party, and he has accepted the invitation," the vice president said. Trump expressed surprise that they both agreed to come to Washington so soon before the election. “We have both candidates coming – unheard of,” he said. Netanyahu has made his close relationship with the American president a centerpiece of his campaign, and Trump has made it clear he favors Netanyahu. Although Trump hasn't officially endorsed Netanyahu, he has made a series of policy pronouncements that seemed timed to boost the Israeli incumbent ahead of the two previous elections. Last spring, for example, Trump recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, a disputed territory. Trump's decision reversed decades of U.S. policy; previous American presidents labeled the territory"occupied" and declined to recognize Israel's annexation. Trump tasked his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner to craft the peace plan early in his presidency. Trump has touted the proposal as the “Deal of the Century.” But its rollout has been repeatedly delayed and its fate is bleak. If the White House does release the proposal next week, it may be viewed as yet another effort to help Netanyahu as he vies to hold onto power in Israel. Netanyahu faces charges of fraud and bribery. Trump touted the deal on Thursday, even as he conceded the Palestinians might not like it. “We’ve spoken to them briefly," Trump said of Palestinian leaders."They have a lot of incentive to do it. I’m sure they maybe will react negatively at first, but it’s actually very positive for them.” The plan is unlikely to break the decades-long stalemate between the Israelis and the Palestinians. The White House has alienated the Palestinians with a series of provocative actions, including moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and cutting U.S. aid to Palestinian refugees. In the wake of those steps, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has refused to engage with the Trump administration, saying the White House is not a neutral broker. “I’d love to be able to do that deal," Trump said Thursday."They say that’s the hardest of all deals.” Contributing: David Jackson Read more: USA TODAY
