'Peace Is A Choice,' Trump Says During Appearance With Palestinian Leader

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson US President Donald Trump Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and advisor Jared Kushner take part in bilateral meeting with Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud at the Saudi Royal Court in Riyadh

"He did not want to wade into any thorny issues", Estrin said, noting the president did not reference controversial issues like Israeli settlements or his campaign promise to move US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Khalidi's denial of a new regional peace initiative comes after President Donald Trump's trip to Israel and the Palestinian territories earlier this week.

Trump and Netanyahu in particular lavished praise on each other during their multiple meetings.

President Donald Trump called for a breakthrough in Israeli-Palestinian relations after he met Tuesday in Bethlehem with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

"The time has come to prove to the Israelis, the Palestinians and the entire world that an important segment of the Israeli population is opposed to occupation and wants a two-state solution", he added.

As Trump posed for photo opportunities and was scheduled to enjoy dinner at Netanyahu's official residence on Monday night, more than 1,300 Palestinians were on their 36th day of hunger strike in Israeli prisons.

"My reading of the most significance part of his trip, was the way the peace process was approached", he said, explaining Trump has diverted from George W. Bush's 2002 roadmap to peace which brought the global community into the equation.

Although Trump was the not the first president to visit the Western Wall, he was the first sitting president to do so.

Before leaving, Trump signed the guest book with a short message in which he gushed about the museum being "so incredible". "The secretary of state has done an incredible job".

Trump was "very forceful" in his discussions with the two leaders, and "everyone has to compromise", Tillerson said.

The President of the United States appeared to get his geography mixed up during a meeting in Israel.

Reports on Israeli TV as the president made his way back to Air Force 1 noted that there was a "great sense of satisfaction" among ministers from the Likud and from the right-wing Jewish Home party following Trump's address. This strained the relationship between the US and Israel, as Netanyahu argued that the deal would not stop Iran from enriching uranium.

The First Lady didn't seem to be interested in walking hand-in-hand with her husband, alongside the Israeli prime minister and his wife. Trump also said that Iran should have thanked the USA for the 2015 nuclear agreement, because it led to sanctions being lifted.

The sentence itself sounded unusual, but the fact that Melania is actually Trump's third wife is what made it cringeworthy. Former President Bill Clinton helped establish the current US policy on Jerusalem through the "Clinton Parameters" in 2000.

But during the president's visit to the Israel Museum on Tuesday, the live stream called the location simply "Jerusalem". Trump also avoided any mention of a future Palestinian state in his brief remarks with Abbas after their meeting in Bethlehem.

Israel's far right wants to noodge President Trump even further right, when Trump will nearly certainly end up noodging them leftward, given that diplomacy involves compromise.

Trump is visiting Jerusalem and West Bank on the second part of his maiden foreign trip since taking office in January. This may be fodder for the administration's next misunderstanding: Is Rome the City of Love?
