Trump said he could 'live with either' a 2-state or 1-state plan in Israel and Palestine


Watch President Trump's press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netahyahu.

President Trump said in a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday he could "live with either" a two-state or 1-state solution with regards to Israel and Palestine.

"I like the one that both parties like," Trump said. 

Trump also reiterated his intention to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a campaign promise he appeared to be moving away from in recent weeks. 

Trump also called the Iran deal "one of the worst deals I've ever seen" and condemned the United Nations' "one-sided" actions that condemned continued settlements in the West Bank.

Netanyahu said he looked forward to discussing a peace deal with Trump but would not "blindly walk into a Palestinian terrorists state." In turn, Trump said before any peace deal could be made, Palestine had to stop teaching children to hate "at a young age," which Netanyahu mentioned shortly beforehand in his speech.

Trump told Netanyahu to "hold back" on building settlements in the West Bank.

He also said "Both sides will have to make compromises."
