Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump held their first press conference together on Wednesday.

During the White House press conference, the two discussed the creation of a peace deal between Israel and Palestinians and the potential for a two-state solution.

Trump said that he'd "like to see [Netanyahu] hold off on settlements for a bit." He also added that he thinks "we are going to make a deal," to which Netanyahu responded "We'll see."

It is the first time the two leaders have met since Trump's inauguration on January 20th.
