Donald Trump's Middle East Comment in Israel

Trump said he wouldn't use the term "monsters" since the suspects would like it.

"And actually I think that despite all the statements that they might make, that would also be the case if the USA made a decision to start moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, to West Jerusalem, the part of the city the Palestinians don't claim for themselves", he said.

"We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom", Trump wrote Tuesday morning in a tweet. What we saw in this visit is a feeling that "it behooves them to welcome [Trump] and to make him feel happy". "We can not stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people", Trump said.

Police said the attacker detonated the explosives shortly after 10:33 pm (2133 GMT) at Manchester Arena, as thousands of fans streamed out of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande.

Mr Abbas reiterated his call for a two-state solution to the conflict, including a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital, insisting that "our problem is not with the Jewish religion, it's with the occupation and settlements, and with Israel not recognising the state of Palestine".

"Mr Abbas assures me he is ready to work towards that goal in good faith, and Israeli Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu has promised the same".

Mr Trump will then travel back to Jerusalem to visit Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and deliver a speech at the Israel Museum.

Both sides are wary of being accused of resisting Trump's peace efforts or being cast as obstructing the resumption of talks. Around Bethlehem, it's a tall concrete wall covered in graffiti.

Two weeks ago, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson explained to NBC that Trump is still evaluating whether the idea of moving the embassy would help or hinder chances for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Mr Abbas is an unpopular leader, according to polls, and the Palestinian political landscape is split between his Fatah party and Hamas, the Islamist movement that is in control in the Gaza Strip and opposes negotiations with Israel. "We're in a new era", he said.

On Monday, Trump flew from Saudi Arabia to Israel. The wall is part of a project begun in 2002 during the second Palestinian intifada, or uprising, that is to extend some 700 kilometers once completed.

Bethlehem also holds deep significance as the site where Christians believe Jesus was born and welcomes thousands of pilgrims each year for Christmas.

At the same time, there are still policy issues that are not agreed between the American and Israeli governments, but the Trump administration is determined to discuss those issues privately with the Israelis and not make a public dispute, Pollock said.

The Palestinian president raised the issue of Palestinian detainees, who have been holding a hunger strike for more than a month. The biggest hurdle he has to cross is, who does the territory of Old Jerusalem belong to?
