Trump to meet Palestinian leader Abbas in West Bank

Earlier Monday, the president joked that longtime Trump Organization negotiator Jason Greenblatt and US ambassador to Israel David Friedman would be responsible for achieving Middle East peace, a task that has also been delegated to Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. "If it does, I would say to you that it goes further in my mind as a member of the intelligence committee than just the focus on the Russian Federation investigation". "Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace".

Sen. Marco Rubio said Tuesday he is not optimistic that a major peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians is near, despite recent comments made by President Donald Trump.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the incident was being treated as a terrorist attack, making it the deadliest militant assault in Britain since four British Muslims killed 52 people in suicide bombings on London's transport system in July 2005.

Trump's daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism and is married to one of the president's top aides Jared Kushner, visited the women's side of the wall.

Of the two leaders, Trump said, "they are ready to reach for peace".

"In this spirit of hope, we come to Bethlehem, asking God for a more peaceful, safe, and far more tolerant world for all of us".

"When Trump was elected, the settlers here celebrated and were sure they were going for annexation".

He stressed that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict was not between religions. And we'll have more of them.

Trump praised Israel, saying it had "built one of the great civilisations: a strong, resilient, determined nation" that he said was "forged in the commitment that we can never allow the horrors and atrocities of the last century to be repeated". "They date back thousands of years", Trump said. Afterwards, he is expected to become the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews can pray and located in east Jerusalem.

Trump called Jerusalem a "sacred city", but did not follow through on his campaign pledge to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the United States embassy to the city, which Trump called "the eternal capital of the Jewish people" during the campaign.

"President Abbas has promised President Trump to be a partner to achieve that long waited for peace", Zumlot told i24NEWS.

Before leaving for Rome and the Vatican, where Trump plans to meet with Pope Francis, Trump plugged the possibility of a long-awaited Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
