To the extent wheeler-dealer Trump was presenting a coherent policy during his press conference, he was expressing exactly that kind of open-mindedness.
Belgian Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) member Hilde Vautmans also condemned the Israeli law retroactively legalizing settlements and described the two-state solution as "further away than ever".
"That, I think, is frankly a unique position of Donald Trump, and one which we're very proud of", he added.
Inside Story - What happens to global support for two-state solution? I thought for a while the two-state looked like it may be the easier of the two.
Leading up to the occasion and following the Netanyahu delegation's events with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, a group of Labor MPs called for Australia to recognise Palestine as a state. Displaying his Twitter-limited ability to absorb information, Trump did what he does best, he "winged" it, leaving it as always for administration spokespersons to later explain what he supposedly really meant.

The officer saw drug paraphernalia inside the auto of 28-year-old suspect Thomas Bennett during a traffic stop, per police. "Ms. She immediately used the patrol car's radio to call for backup along Airline Highway before jumping on the suspect's back.
The statement issued Thursday by Netanyahu and Malcolm Turnbull also said that "Australia re-affirmed its commitment to Israel's right to exist as the nation-state of the Jewish people, in peace within secure borders, and its steadfast opposition to attempts to undermine Israel's legitimacy".
The second issue that stood out in the press conference was on the question of Israeli settlements.
The body - comprising representatives from across the Arab world - said "the Palestinian cause remains the key to achieving comprehensive peace and stability in the Middle East" and "continuation of the Israeli settlement project will lead to a one-state reality, which is no solution", arguing it would further destabilise the region. The logic here is that along with Egypt and Jordan, which already have peace agreements with Israel, this will create irresistible pressure on the Palestinians to succumb to a peace deal dictated by Israel. Netanyahu realizes that unchecked settlement activity and annexation of any parts of the West Bank will completely isolate Israel internationally and even put him on a collision course with the United States.
Palestinian protesters also threw shoes at a poster of Donald Trump, the U.S. preesident, who last week cast doubt on the decades-long process to create a Palestinian state in the West Bank, and who has refused to condemn Israel's continued illegal policy of settlement building in the occupied territory.
