President Trump will meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday at the World Economic Forum in Davos. National security adviser H.R. McMaster said at the White House press briefing that Trump and Netanyahu will discuss the Iranian threat and the effort to promote the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians.

Why it matters: The meeting will come at a time when on both issues — Iran and the Middle East peace process — there is a current or looming crisis. Trump and Netanayhu are in agreement about the need to fundamentally "fix" the Iranian nuclear deal or even to "nix" it. Trump and Netanyahu are the only Western leaders holding this position.
