Trump meets Abbas in Bethlehem in an effort to revive peace process

The President's 9 day trip includes stops in Saudi Arabia and a trip to the Vatican to meet with the Pope. That there's something larger going on that's affecting all of us.

Trump tied the attack in to his talks with Middle East leaders on his trip overseas.

"President Abbas assures me he is ready to work toward that goal in good faith, and Prime Minister (Benjamin) netanyahu has promised the same". He called Trump's visit to the Western Wall particularly noteworthy given Obama's decision not to veto the "stupidest United Nations resolution ever", which declared that the site is not part of Israel.

Trump, speaking after talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the town of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, said the United States stands in "absolute solidarity" with the British people.

Trump, fresh off two days in Saudi Arabia, will journey to Jerusalem on Monday and his stay will include separate meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas accused US President Donald Trump on Monday of smearing the name of Palestinian "resistance" to Israeli occupation during a speech on Islam.

Trump to become 6th U.S. president to visit Israel
On Monday and Tuesday, Trump is to visit Israel and the West Bank, for meetings with the Israeli and Palestinian leaders. They might not have been as shocked by this week's events had they not suffered from these delusions in the first place.

"I do think initiating the possibility of us discussing, us, meaning the Israelis, discussing with the Palestinians is a hopeful step", says Gott.

"They're losers, just remember that", President Donald Trump said of the people behind the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England last night that killed 22 and injured at least 59. "I've heard about you so much from my mother". "So, we are telling you right now, that Iran will not have nuclear weapons", he said. During his earlier visit with Arab leaders in Saudi Arabia, the US leader said he "found new reasons for hope" for a joint peace effort and greater coordination in the fight against terrorism.

The route took the president past the "Walled Off Hotel", a guesthouse run by the British graffiti artist Banksy that is created to draw attention to the security infrastructure, which Israel says is there to protect against Palestinian attacks.

The White House noted that Trump and Netanyahu discussed the current situation in Syria and the need for a political solution to the ongoing conflict in that country.

In joint statements on the tarmac, Trump and Netanyahu referred to hopes of a wider peace deal in the region, comments that were heavy on rhetoric but light on details of how that could be achieved.

Trump later visited Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial, for a wreath laying ceremony.
