Palestinians, Israel police clash at Jerusalem Old City gate

President Trump did not bow to him as has been done in the past.

"I'm not at peace with any arms race and the huge Saudi purchase for sure doesn't add much to our peace of mind", he said in an interview with Israeli army radio.

The spectacle of hypocrisy was superficial in the freakish sword dance that, for once, exempted dancing as a haram act in the puritanical nation in which Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Trump and White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon awkwardly joined along. The fourth would cut off funding for the Palestinian Authority.

Trump's nine-day, five-stop global tour resulted in few tangible policy achievements.

"In both Israel and Saudi Arabia, many USA journalists are being barred from Trump press events because they're women". At NATO, the White House touted the alliance's commitment to boosting defence spending, though the resolution was essentially a continuation of a pact agreed to two years earlier.

Trump praised Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's trip organising skills during a meeting in Jerusalem with Rivlin.

From the start, he set a new direction. It is considered that Saudi Arabia and Israel may establish relations in the near future with the aim of moving together against Iran.

He appeared particularly comfortable in the setting.

On May 20, Trump arrived in Riyadh and held talks with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz. Instead, he reciprocated with a pledge to not publicly chastise the ruling royal family for its crackdown on political dissent. "And we are keen to keep the door open to dialogue with our Israeli neighbours", Abbas told his American counterpart, stressing, however, that the real problem was in occupation and settlements.

"And I also heard from several sources that he's gotten some bad advice from the prime minister of Israel", says Rubin, "who wants that Saudi relationship so badly that he has even said that it might not be a good idea for the president to move the embassy right now".

"Now, the State of Israel not only declares that the Western Wall belongs to it, but also invests resources in it", he said. For some Israeli officials and Mideast experts, Trump's visit brought hope of making historic gains towards an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord in the context of a broader regional framework.

"He didn't reprimand Israel for settlements, he didn't commit the United States to a two-state vision".

A commentary in Israel's centrist Yediot Aharonot newspaper said that after two days of waiting for Trump's keynote address "the only thing we could learn from that speech was how to say nothing with a whole lot of words". Trump hung back, deciding against joining his peers. "For example, most presidents take four years to finish a term and it looks like Trump's going to get it done in, like, eight months".
