Trump Israel trip 1st presidential flight from Saudi Arabia

"Speaking before attending a dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Trump says he believes a new level of partnership in the region is possible - and that it will happen". Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attempted, unsuccessfully, to swat Hazan's arm away.

Trump reportedly shared sensitive intelligence with the Russians about the Islamic State, with speculation that the information shared came from Israeli intelligence sources.

The visit raised questions about whether the US would indicate the site is Israeli territory.

"So you have another story wrong", he told reporters.

The visit raised questions about whether the US would indicate the site is Israeli territory.

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. "Think about how upsetting to us it is that the USA doesn't recognize Jerusalem as our capital".

US President Donald Trump arrived in Israel on Monday on the second leg of his first overseas trip since entering office and said he had new reasons to hope for peace and stability to the Middle East after his visit to Saudi Arabia.

Mr Trump vowed to do whatever necessary to broker peace between Israel and the Palestinians, dubbing a peace accord "the ultimate deal".

Trump met various officials during a receiving line at the airport. We enjoy uninterrupted time together and it's wonderful. "There is no other way".

"So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life", Trump said.

"Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians", he said.

Israel has sought to downplay the concerns, saying security ties with the USA will continue to be strong.

Donald Trump appears to have inadvertently confirmed that Israel was the source of intelligence he shared with Russian Federation.

Earlier on Monday, Trump slammed the nuclear deal with Iran, saying Iranian should be "grateful" to the USA for the benefits they received. His wife, daughter and son-in-law joined him in visiting two of the holiest sites of Christianity and Judaism, including the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built, tradition has it, over the sites of Jesus' crucifixion and burial.

Security will be tight for President Trump's journey to Bethlehem, a 20-minute drive from Jerusalem but located across Israel's controversial separation wall.

Mr Trump, wearing a black skullcap, was photographed pushing a prayer into the wall, as is traditional. He pulled out a note from his jacket pocket and placed it into a crack in the wall.

Mr Netanyahu said he hoped Mr Trump's visit would be a "historic milestone" in achieving regional peace.

President Donald Trump has once again defended himself against allegations of sharing United States intelligence data provided by Israel with Russian officials during recent a meeting in Washington.

"I want you to know how much we appreciate the change in American policy on Iran which you enunciated so clearly", Netanyahu, who had an acrimonious relationship with former U.S. President Barack Obama, told Trump at his official residence.
