Is 2-State Solution Dead? In Israel, a Debate Over What’s Next
Israelis and Palestinians are confused by President Donald J. Trump's flippancy toward decades of U.S. policy in the Middle East.

They'll soon learn to ignore Trump's "flippancy." He is simply a complete ignoramus.

Probably thinks "two states? Why does it take two? What a waste of a state. I can do it with one state, okay? It'll be the best state anyone has seen, everyone will love my state, and of course they will thank me....I'M NOT RANTING AND RAVING!"

He just wants what everyone wants, as long as they want that, and then he's good with that. that's ok, right? Sounds like leadership, kinda. I mean, as long as you guys think it does. Then I'm good.

Alex, she is absolutely right, no clue, even Bibi was dumbfounded at press conference. Trump said I will you and Palestinians figure what works best for you and BIbi, by the way can you hold off on settlements. I am sure some people think that he is America needed, but this might be the worst presidency Year. Not sure if you remember when New York had a hail the chimp cover and they were referring to ex President Bush. Well they should put hail baffoon to refer to Trump.

I fear that violence will only continue to escalate until a two-state solution becomes the only real option. "Standing with Israel" should mean making Israel see reason, and look to their own future - a future that involves them committing to be a secular state within the UN-recognized borders, not a religious state occupying Eretz Israel (the West Bank occupied territories). Otherwise, there will be no peace, and a bloodbath will be the ultimate result.

When are you all
Going to stop pretending that Trump
Has one iota of knowledge or worthwhile opinion on any matters of state? Really, he is winging it.

This has yo be the most corrupt and inept administration in history. Trump doesn't know the difference between 1 state and 2 state.

They're confused? I wonder why...? 45 doesn't know what he's talking about - he probably couldn't read the big words in the briefing materials.

It's not so much flippancy, as he literally has no idea what he's doing.
