Trump's First International Trip as President: Saudi Arabia, Israel

23 Mai, 2017, 18:48 | Author: Claudine Rigal

They were joined by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara, as well as daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who are White House senior advisers.

Trump campaigned on a pledge of moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, Israel's capital, but has since retreated.

Israel has no diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia despite informal ties on certain levels, particularly around shared concerns over Iran.

After Israel and the Palestinian territories, Trump will head to the Vatican along with Brussels and Italy for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and G7 meetings. "He wasn't briefed on the source or method of the information either". The two then shook hands for the cameras as reporters shouted questions.

Following the incident, Hazan wasn't invited to the welcome ceremony as Likud politicians said he "caused a great embarrassment to Netanyahu".

Meanwhile, breaking longstanding tradition, Trump became the first sitting American president to ever visit the Old City of Jerusalem.

Netanyahu did not share such a close relationship with former President Barack Obama, who was not as outspoken as Trump in unequivocal support for Israel. But in preparations for the visit, a junior USA official commented to Israelis that the site is "not your territory". Trump touched it in prayer and, adhering to tradition, placed a note in a deep crevice.

Questions about Russian Federation chase Trump during first Israel visit

Trump sees to slash government spending in budget plan
A popular children's health program for families that earn too much money to qualify for Medicaid would get a two-year extension. The proposal projects that this year's deficit will rise to $603 billion, up from the actual deficit of $585 billion last year.


Palestinian officials say they are ready to resume negotiations with Israel that collapsed in 2014, but the road ahead remains challenging.

The Palestinian president greeted Abbas outside the presidential palace and the two men walked along a red carpet onto its grounds. United States news website Gizmodo stated: "Israeli politician takes awkward selfie with Trump while Netanyahu tries to push him away". "But we can only get there working together", he continued.

Mr Trump added: "Our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed". I want you to know how much we appreciate your bold decision to act against the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

Regardless of this adjustment, both Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas have expressed interest in restarting the peace process with Trump. This was the sum total of what he set out, a feeling that a deal could happen eventually, or at least so he hopes.

On Tuesday, he is to visit Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial, and deliver a speech on the U.S.

Israel took control of the Old City after the Six Day War in 1967 and Israelis consider it, and all of Jerusalem, to be the capital of Israel, though Tel Aviv is recognized as the capital by the global community. "Due to the significance of this holy place, we request that you officially recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel on your visit".

Trump has sent mixed signals about how he will approach the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
