In a joint press conference in Washington, Trump said he could back either a one-state or two-state solution for the region.
“President Trump’s apparent confusion about the need for a two-state solution undermines Israel’s security and the prospects for peace. His jumbled response to a question about his commitment to a two-state solution leaves us with more questions than answers,” said Davis after the press conference.
“A peace agreement establishing a two-state solution has been a cornerstone of U.S. policy for decades and I continue to believe that it is the most credible way to achieve a lasting peace.”
Israel currently exercises military control over the west bank of the Jordan River, an area governed by the Palestinian National Authority. U.S. policy for decades has been to encourage Israel to allow the area to become a Palestinian state.
Davis represents the 53rd Congressional District, which includes central San Diego, La Mesa, Lemon Grove, Spring Valley and parts of El Cajon and Chula Vista.
