President Trump told reporters Wednesday morning that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's election victory was "a good sign for peace."
"Everybody said you can't have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians. I think we have a chance. I think we have now a better chance with Bibi having won."
Driving the news: Netanyahu scored a fifth term in office with his election win yesterday, declaring that he will be "prime minister for all" even as he faces a slew of corruption indictments. Trump called Netanyahu from Air Force One to congratulate him for his victory in the elections, Netanyahu's office said in a statement. Netanyahu thanked Trump for his support, and the two leaders agreed to continue working closely together.
