“Bibi and I have known each other for a long time,” Trump told the group of gathered reporters. “He’s a smart man and a great negotiator, and I think that we’re going to make a deal.”

“It may be a bigger deal than people in this room understand that’s a possibility,” he continued. “So let’s see what we do.”
