Earlier, Trump made clear that reports about the near-term announcement of the Middle East peace plan are incorrect. “The United States is looking forward to receiving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the president of the White-Blue Alliance, Benny Gantz, at the White House next week,” Trump said in a tweet posted on Thursday evening on his official Twitter account. Trump added, “The reports about the details of our peace plan, which we keep under wraps, and the timing of the announcement, are just speculation.”
The United States looks forward to welcoming Prime Minister @Netanyahu & Blue & White Chairman @Gantzbe to the @WhiteHouse next week. Reports about details and timing of our closely-held peace plan are purely speculative.

As soon as media outlets approached the announcement of the peace plan, the Palestinian Authority renewed on Thursday its rejection of the American plan after announcing the invitation of Israeli leaders to Washington to discuss the peace plan in the Middle East.
Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said in a statement that the authority reaffirms its categorical rejection of the American decisions that were announced about Jerusalem and considered it the capital of Israel, along with a number of American decisions that violate international law.

The White House confirmed that Trump invited Netanyahu and Gantz to visit Washington next week to discuss the “deal of the century”, which the Trump administration has been working on since he took office in 2017.
On Thursday, US Vice President Mike Pence announced that he had invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to visit Washington next week to discuss the US peace plan in the Middle East.
