Ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to the United States, more details on how the Trump Administration plans to approach Middle East policy are beginning to emerge. Namely, it appears as though they will not be looking to propose a two-state solution.

Speaking anonymously, a White House official said that a two-state solution "that doesn't bring peace" is not a goal that this administration will be looking for.

This is a stark departure from the Obama administration, who felt as though a two-state solution was the only way to bring peace to the region.
