NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd reported that officials inside the White House “are very much calling” for “any sort of UN action that might recognize an independent Palestine, or that might try to attempt to jump start and force a two-state solution” on Friday’s “Now with Alex Wagner” on MSNBC.
“Right now, you have people inside the White House, in the administration, that are very much calling for the US to support potential — any sort of UN action that might recognize an independent Palestine, or that might try to attempt to jump start and force a two-state solution in a way that — UN involvement is something the United States has prevented for quite sometime. And now you have basically a divided white house internally on this question. I think it’s a generational divide when it comes to these things. I think some of the older folks in the White House are saying, ‘hey, it’s about Israel, not an individual, so, let things wait.’ But I — look, it’s not good. And I think that’s why Netanyahu tried to backtrack as fast as he did” he stated.
