Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said at a joint press conference at the White House on Wednesday with President Donald Trump he has “hope” for peace. Much to the chagrin of his critics, it isn’t the first time the Palestinian leader has praised the new President.

Abbas recently declared that a “historic” peace deal to end the decades-old conflict is possible under Trump’s leadership. While remaining a staunch supporter of Israel and personal friend to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the President received high marks for calling on the closest U.S. ally in the Middle East to hold further settlements in the West Bank.

President Trump said last week he sees “no reason” why there can’t be peace between Israel and the Palestinians. “None whatsoever.”
