US President Donald Trump told reporters the "hopefully something terrific will come between Palestinians and Israel."

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas made his first official visit to the White House Wednesday afternoon to meet with US President Donald Trump.

The leaders are expected to touch on a myriad of different topics including the resumption of Mideast peace negotiations and PA payments to terrorists and their families.

Trump faces deep skepticism at home and abroad over his chances for a breakthrough with Abbas, not least because the new US administration has yet to articulate a cohesive strategy for restarting long-stalled peace talks.
