Trump's speech from Jerusalem

25 May 2017

When Donald Trump and his wife Melania touched down in Rome on the most recent stop in their tour, the United States president was again denied the hand of his wife as they disembarked from Air Force One.

In planning for Trump's visit to Israel, the US delegation rejected a request that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accompany him to the Western Wall, telling the Israelis it is "not your territory".

After greeting Trump with a firm handshake, Hazan whipped out his phone and said: "I wish I could do a selfie with you".

This is not the first stop of Trump's trip to the Middle East to inspire mockery on Twitter.

Flynn rejects subpoena; Democrats say he lied
Trump has defended Flynn since his ouster and called on him to strike an immunity deal because Flynn was facing a "witch hunt". After the firm's deduction, Flynn received the $33,000, according to records obtained by the committee.

Trump had promised during his campaign that he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, which now the USA and most of the worldwide community does not, and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In a speech in Riyadh on Sunday, he urged Muslim leaders to eradicate what he called "Islamic extremism" and cast the effort as a "battle between good and evil". President Trump stressed the importance of creating an environment consistent with the desire for peace.

JERUSALEM (AP) - Even before President Donald Trump began his trip to Israel, he already may have made history.

A Palestinian man was killed after an attempted stabbing at a checkpoint just outside Jerusalem shortly after Trump had entered the Old City, according to Israeli police.

A senior Palestinian official says he expects President Donald Trump's visit to the Holy Land to reopen a path toward resuming long-stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. "But with determination to compromise and believe peace is possible, Israelis and Palestinians can reach a deal", he said.

Washington's uncertain position on climate change clouds Arctic talks
She said, however, that the declaration is the latest and best picture of where the Trump administration stands on climate change. The Arctic Council is an advisory body that promotes cooperation among member nations and indigenous groups.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas may be signaling peace negotiation readiness but the Palestinian people, who perceive the Trump administration as pro-Israel, are jaded. On Tuesday morning, Trump met with Abbas in Bethlehem, traveling across the barrier surrounding the biblical city, which serves as a visual reminder of the complexities of the conflict in the region.

Among the main bones of contention between Israelis and Palestinians are Netanyahu's insistence that the Palestinians recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people and the Palestinians calling for a halt to Israeli settlement building in the West Bank.

It is estimated that approximately 2000 members of Palestinian security forces were sent to Bethlehem for the occasion. "They date back thousands of years", Trump said.

After a moment, Trump, wearing a black yarmulke, pulled a slip of paper from his jacket pocket and placed it in a niche in the limestone wall, as is customary for visitors, who first write prayers on the paper.
