Trump and Netanyahu held a press conference at the White House today.
According to Trump, “America and Israel are two nations that cherish the value of all human life.” Imma just gonna leave that one sitting there.
Trump demonstrated his deep understanding of the complexities of Middle East politics: “So I’m looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like. (Laughter.) I’m very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one. I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two. But honestly, if Bibi and if the Palestinians – if Israel and the Palestinians are happy, I’m happy with the one they like the best.”
Netanyahu made this cogent argument in favor of the Jewish people having a historical right to occupy Israel: “why are Jews called Jews? Well, the Chinese are called Chinese because they come from China. The Japanese are called Japanese because they come from Japan. Well, Jews are called Jews because they come from Judea.” Boy, you can’t argue with that logic.
No reporter asked him why Palestinians are called Palestinians.
