John Bolton, the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, told the Jerusalem Post on Monday that there was no chance for President Donald Trump to secure a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

Trump “is an optimistic man and can take a good shot at it, but I don’t think the conditions exist. I don’t think the two-state solution is viable anymore,” Bolton said during a trip to Jerusalem.

“It is not a question of personality or effort, it is just undoable. There has been a 70-plus year effort for the two-state solution,” which has failed, he said, adding, “You can’t put it back together again.”

Trump last week during a nine-day trip abroad met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and said that with, “determination, compromise, and the belief that peace is possible,” Israelis and Palestinians could make a deal.

But a report Monday said Trump reportedly lashed out at Abbas while in Bethlehem.

“You tricked me in D.C.! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel],” he allegedly said to Abbas, according to Israel’s Channel 2 broadcaster.
