The White House refused to comment on the Israeli settlement bill passed on Monday, though said that the topic will eventually be discussed between the leaders of the two countries.

When White House Spokesman Sean Spicer was asked about the US response to the Israeli legislation, he said that the settlement bill "will obviously be a topic" of conversation when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump eventually meet.

Spicer refused to comment further, saying "I don't want to talk about it."
