On Tuesday, President Trump along with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and his challenger Benny Gantz, together announced a new peace plan to settle the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It was a plan that guaranteed a two-state solution, but during their evening newscasts, CBS and NBC chastised the plan and suggested it was just a ploy to save Trump from impeachment and Netanyahu from corruption charges.
“And it's been nearly three years in the making today, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared together in the White House to unveil a plan for Middle East peace, but it's already been rejected we the Palestinians,” announced CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell.
CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang kicked off her report by trying to malign their motives, stating: “For two leaders fighting for their political lives, there was no better time to announce a peace plan.”
