ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Donald Trump said "I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing, I mean ever, a nuclear weapon" during a news conference with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday (February 15). "One of the worst deals I've ever seen is the Iran deal," said Trump. "My administration has already imposed new sanctions on Iran and I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing, I mean ever, a nuclear weapon." Trump is hosting Netanyahu for talks that could shape the contours of future Middle East policy, as Palestinians warned the White House not to abandon their goal of an independent state. For decades, the idea of creating a Palestine living peacefully alongside Israel has been a bedrock U.S. position, though the last negotiations broke down in 2014. But in a potential shift, a senior White House official said on Tuesday that peace did not necessarily have to entail Palestinian statehood, and Trump would not try to "dictate" a solution.
