WATCH: The Big Difference Between Bibi and Obama

Bibi is a leader, and Obama is a thumb sucker. End of story.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sat down today with Megyn Kelly, just 48 hours after his hard-fought re-election.

The two discussed a two-state solution, a nuclear weapons deal with Iran, and the difference between being president of the United States and prime minister of Israel.

Netanyahu appeared to walk back his remarks this week about opposing a two-state solution. He told Kelly that he didn’t retract anything he said in his 2009 speech, in which he said he supported a peace deal. Netanyahu said he still wants a demilitarized Palestinian state to recognize a Jewish state, but that the conditions today are not achievable. Netanyahu said we must get the Palestinians back at the negotiation table, where they must break their pact with Hamas and accept the idea of a Jewish state.

Kelly questioned Netanyahu on reports that President Barack Obama sees no path to a peace agreement and is threatening to abandon Israel at the United Nations.

“I hope that’s not true, and I think that President Obama has said time and time again, as I’ve said, that the only path to a peace agreement is an agreement, a negotiated agreement. You can’t impose it,” he said.

Netanyahu added that Israel can’t be forced to accept terms that would endanger its very survival.

“I don’t think that’s the direction of American policy,” he said. “I hope it’s not.”

Kelly cited an AP report which states that the draft of a nuclear deal with Iran would force the Iranians to cut its centrifuges by just 40 percent. She asked: Are we conceding too much?

Netanyahu called for a different and better deal, explaining that the current deal would leave Iran with sufficient capabilities.
