SUMTER, S.C. - Donald Trump, who has argued his experience negotiating tough real estate deals makes him best qualified to be US president, said on Wednesday it might be impossible to forge a lasting peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

During a televised town hall session hosted by MSNBC in South Carolina, Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, said he believed getting a deal done would be "very, very tough."

The remarks were notable not only because Trump rarely discusses Israel or the Mideast peace process on the campaign trail, but also because they seemed to show a shift in Trump's views on the feasibility of a deal.
