American GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Wednesday refused to pick sides when asked about Israel and Palestine.
During an MSNBC town hall, the Republican presidential candidate said that he had some doubt that he could settle the complex, decades-long conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
“It is a very, very tough agreement to make. But I will give it one hell of a shot. That I can tell you. But of all agreements — I would say if you can do that deal, you can do any deal. That’s probably the toughest deal in the world right now to make and it’s possible it’s not make-able.”
However, even thought he did not expose a concrete pro-Israeli agenda, as most of the other U.S. Presidential candidates, – Ted Cruz mention this week that one of his first moves in Foreign Policy if elected president would be to transfer the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – including democrat Hillary Clinton, he mention this:
“I was with a very prominent Israeli the other day and he said it’s impossible because the other side has been trained from the time they’re children to hate Jewish people. I’m going to give it a shot.”
Last year, Trump told an audience in Washington, DC, that Israel “hasn’t been given a lot of credit” for attempting to negotiate with Palestine.
Trump also planned a trip to Tel Aviv in December to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, but subsequently canceled it.
