Netanyahu was accompanied to the meeting by Israel's ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, and Trump was joined by his son-in-law Jared Kushner,  The Jerusalem Post reported.

Netanyahu was scheduled to meet Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton later Sunday before flying back to Israel.

In the statement, Trump described U.S. military assistance to Israel as an "excellent investment," and Middle East peace can only be achieved when "the Palestinians renounce hatred and violence and accept Israel as a Jewish State."
