WASHINGTON (AP) - As his predecessors have done, President Donald Trump is urging Israel to "hold off" on building Jewish settlements -- an appeal he made at a joint news conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today at the White House. But Trump broke with those who preceded him in office on the idea of a two-state agreement. He held off on endorsing the idea of a future independent Palestine -- and said he'd be open to alternatives if the Israelis and Palestinians propose something better.
