Netanyahu victory a good sign for "peace": Trump

ROUGH CUT (no reporter narration) STORY: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's winning re-election after parliamentary elections was a good sign for peace.

Trump made the remark to reporters at the White House.

Netanyahu secured a clear path to re-election with religious-rightist parties set to hand him a parliamentary majority despite a close contest against his main centrist challenger, a vote tally showed.

With more than 97 percent of votes counted, Netanyahu's conservative Likud party looked likely to muster enough support to control 65 of the Knesset's 120 seats and be named to head the next coalition government.

It would be his record fifth term as premier.
