President Donald Trump is optimistic that he can bring peace to the Mideast because "the man is different," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday.

"The president's diplomacy is paying dividends," he told reporters at the daily briefing. "It's going to pay huge dividends in terms of economic interests, our national security interests.

"But this president's style is one that has developed a personal bond with individuals."

Spicer noted Trump's meeting with Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority — "you saw him talking so kindly about the president" — and the commander-in-chief's longstanding support for Israel.

"You saw the relationship that exists and is only getting stronger between him and Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu," Spicer said.

"You have two individuals who, because of this president, are increasing their desire for peace."

In addition, the spokesman also cited Trump's relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, which has led to Beijing to increase pressure on North Korea to end its nuclear and weapons ambitions.

"You've got an individual in President Xi in China, who has taken fairly significant action to work with the United States, especially with respect to our desire to end the threat in North Korea.

"It's been unprecedented.

"To have back-room diplomacy is something that will continue to pay dividends and get results for this country."
