Trump invites Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to White House -
UPI reports: "For the first time since taking office, President Donald Trump spoke with the leader of the Palestinian Authority, inviting him to a White House meeting and reaffirming U.S. commitment to the peace process. [...] In his first meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump upended 20 years of U.S. diplomacy by saying he was willing to settle for a peace agreement that did not end in the creation of an internationally recognized Palestinian state, the so-called 'two-state solution.'"

Comment: It will be interesting to see how a self-described master deal-maker takes on the puzzle of Mideast peace.  Stay tuned.
