JERUSALEM (AP) - President Donald Trump is congratulating Benjamin Netanyahu as he appears to be headed for a fifth term as prime minister of Israel.
    
Speaking with reporters in Washington on Wednesday, Trump acknowledged that it might be a bit premature to declare Netanyahu's victory, but said he's hearing that he's won.
    
Unofficial election results seem to give a solid majority in parliament to Netanyahu's right-wing Likud and other nationalist and religious parties. The outcome would affirm Israel's continued shift to the right and further dim hopes of resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The Palestinians have severed ties with the Trump administration.
    
Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner has been working on a Mideast peace plan. Few if any details have emerged, but Trump says there will be "some pretty good action" on the plan soon.
