Speaking on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Biarritz, France, President Donald Trump on Monday morning told reporters he may reveal the details of his “deal of the century” peace plan before the September 17 Israeli elections.

Last week, Trump said, “We will probably wait for the release of the Middle East peace plan until after the Israeli elections.”

On Monday, Trump also told reporters the Palestinians would “like to have US funding back and make a deal.”

The Trump peace plan, a.k.a. the Deal of the century, is divided into two parts, one economic, the other political. On June 22, 2019, the Trump administration released the economic portion of the plan, titled “Peace to Prosperity,” containing two pamphlets of 40 and 96 pages filled with financial tables and economic projections. The political portion is yet to be released.

According to a Reuters report, the political report, possibly offering solutions for issues like the status of eastern Jerusalem, the Palestinian right of return, and the fate of the Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria as well as the Jordan valley, will not be revealed before November 2019.
