Trump removes tweet saying it was 'honor' to host Abbas

Visiting Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas said today that US President Donald Trump brings in "hope" towards finding a solution to the decades old Israeli-Palestine conflict.

Donald Trump has said he does not think brokering peace in the Middle East will be as hard as people think. Trump deleted a tweet that said it was an "honor" to meet the Palestinian leader. Most observers were quick to note that the president's prediction of success was not backed up by any plan of action or reason for his optimism.

"There's such hatred, but hopefully there won't be such hatred for very long", Trump said, speaking alongside Abbas in the Roosevelt Room.

Senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official Nabil Shaath unequivocally rejected President Donald Trump's request to end the PA's policy of paying stipends to Palestinian terrorists and their families, calling the proposal "insane".

According to him, even though "they talk about the two-state solution, of course we know that there is no two-state solution possible anymore".

But he added that peace with Israel must be "based on the vision of two states" based on the 1967 borders with the Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem, and renewed his call for Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian land.

The Surface Laptop , though, will perhaps be the most powerful laptop based on Windows 10 S , which was also launched on Tuesday. Windows 10 S mainly meant to run on Windows 10 education PCs from Microsoft partners like Acer and Dell at sub $200 prices.

Trump says that he'll act as a facilitator, but "any agreement can not be imposed by the United States, or by any other nation".

"Now Mr. President with you we have hope", he added in the only English-language remarks he made.

A senior United States official said on Tuesday that the issue of payments had been raised in preliminary talks with the Palestinians in Washington.

Trump hosted Abbas, 82, to the White House on Wednesday as part of his efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

"We believe Israel is willing".

"The Palestinian inmates are victims of Israel's control of the West Bank".

Israel, in turn, has been skeptical of a UN-promoted solution that would allow for the peaceful co-existence of Israeli and Palestinian states.

"I affirm to you that we are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace", Abbas said, notwithstanding the anti-Israel hate and incitement to violence prevalent in Palestinian schools, media and cultural events.

Trump sparked worldwide criticism at the time when he appeared to back away from support for a two-state solution, saying he would leave it up to the parties themselves to decide.

Abbas also does not appear to have secured US backing for pressure on Israel to end settlement construction in the lands the Palestinians claim for a future state - a major goal for the embattled Palestinian leader.

Abbas and Hamas have led rival governments since the Islamic militant group seized Gaza in 2007, driving out forces loyal to the Western-backed Palestinian president.

Trump has previously mildly criticized Israel for its expansion into Palestinian territory.
