Trump affirms peace is "possible" between Israel and Palestinians

"This wicked ideology must be obliterated - and I mean completely obliterated - and the innocent life must be protected".

In the video that surfaced on May 22, Melania and Donald were in the Middle East.

He said he was keen to "keep the door open to dialogue with our Israeli neighbours to build confidence and create a real opportunity for peace". Or the fact that the US President was walking side by side with the Israeli first couple, leaving Mrs Trump a step behind.

Abbas stressed that the Palestinian people's attainment of freedom and independence was the key to peace and stability in the world, "so that the children of Palestine and Israel enjoy a safe, stable, and prosperous future".

White House spokesman Sean Spicer, later asked about McMaster's comments, said "It's clearly in Jerusalem". More than 20 people were killed by an apparent suicide bomber. On Twitter, many said they could not wait for their next stop - which would be Brussels on May 25 for a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. "He's not preconditioned by most political conventions that say 'this is how this has to work out'".

"President Trump is really, really serious and he thinks peace is possible".

Authorities in Manchester, meanwhile said it appears there was one attacker who detonated an improvised explosive device at the concert.

Trump was returning to Jerusalem later Tuesday to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and deliver remarks.

The Islamic Jihad movement also organized a rally in central Gaza City condemning "Trump's statements against resistance factions", with the group stressing that they completely rejected the United States president's characterization of Hamas as a terrorist organization, raising a banner that said: "Our dignity is our most valuable possession".

The shoe-leather tasks of day-to-day discussions with leaders in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Amman and the Gulf to gather input and regional perspective has been handled by Jason Greenblatt, a real-estate lawyer and long-term Trump loyalist.

As President Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to visit the hallowed Western Wall on Monday, it remained unclear whether his administration was changing longstanding USA policy by declaring the wall's location to be Israel, versus Jerusalem. The family was separated by gender. Since then, USA policy on the city has not explicitly changed much, with former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama both favoring direct negotiations between the two parties over unilateral action.

Trump and Melania: What's going on? Israel controls the wall, the nation's top tourist site, and treats it like Israeli territory, routinely holding solemn state ceremonies there. Despite Israeli annexation of Jerusalem, the global community has roundly rejected claims of complete Israeli sovereignty over the city.

Let's start by conceding that the White House achieved all of its short-term objectives.

Trump praised Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's trip organizing skills during a meeting in Jerusalem with Rivlin.

"I had a meeting this morning with [Palestinian] President Abbas. I am telling you that, that's what I do", Trump told the suddenly quiet audience in Jerusalem. Trump waved to the crowd and was seen reaching for his wife's left hand as they disembarked, but she quickly raised it to her head to brush her hair aside. -Israeli intelligence cooperation is "terrific". Both he and Trump wore black kippahs as a mark of respect.

The moment was an abrupt interruption of an otherwise warm and smooth welcome for Trump to the Holy Land. "We just got back from the Middle East, we just got back from Saudi Arabia", Trump said. "It won't be simple". Though it won't show in the photos, Trump's carelessness bodes ill - in the short-term, for the intense engagement and rebuilt relationships a peace process would require, and in the long-term, for his grandchildren's ability to visit those Christian, Jewish, and Muslim landmarks at peace.
