President Donald Trump hosted Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas to the White House to discuss peacemaking between the Palestinians and the Israelis on May 3, according to the New York Times.

Throughout the discussion the two leaders agreed that it is time to make peace between the two countries.

Abbas said, “After 50 years, we are the only remaining people in the world who still live under occupation. We are aspiring and want to achieve our freedom and our dignity and our right to self-determination.”

Trump suggested taking away Palestinian aid if they continued to make payments to suicide bombers and their families. He is trying to ensure the peace between the two. This conversation was not spoken at the meeting but Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary, said Trump brought this up in private.

Trump suggested that he would do whatever it takes to go forward with the peacemaking. Although a plan was not proposed, he believes his negotiating skills will lead to a great deal.
