Donald Trump has made his entrance at the United Nations General Assembly, and according to CBN News, has already begun talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The two leaders have discussed the recent behavior of Iran in the Middle East, as well as the possibility of peace between Israel and Palestine.

“‘I think Israel would like to see it and the Palestinians would like to see it,’ said President Trump. ‘I think there is a good chance it could happen.’”

His thoughts were reiterated by Minister Netanyahu, who hinted that Israel was open to peaceful discussion. These responses have come as something of a surprise given Trump’s long history of criticizing the U.N. However, his rhetoric appears to have softened since the General Assembly convened.
