Donald Trump Won't Call Manchester Suicide Bomber A 'Monster'

President Donald Trump listens as he is introduced by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the Israel Museum Tuesday

"The president was very forceful in his encouragement to both of them to be serious about approaching these discussions in the future and recognize you have to compromise", Tillerson said in Rome, where he was accompanying Trump on his first overseas trip as president.

"I think the fact that he was the first sitting USA president to go to the Western Wall is meaningful", Beigelman said.

In his meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin Monday, Trump also discussed the peace process without mentioning a two-state solution.

Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, the top Vatican representative in Jerusalem, told The AJN, "We don't have very high expectations".

Meanwhile, ahead of Trump's meeting with Netanyahu in Jerusalem Monday, a live-streamed White House schedule stated Trump would deliver remarks in "Jerusalem, Israel", apparently recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the holy city despite Trump himself never affirming a change in U.S. policy.

Israel Hayom reported Thursday that Trump told Abbas during their private meeting in Bethlehem on Tuesday that his peace initiative will be based on the Saudi plan for a normalization of ties between Israel and Arab countries in the region, which would then lead to negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

US President Donald Trump has returned to the White House after his first global trip, during which he visited Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy, the Vatican and Belgium over a period of nine days.

Israel annexed east Jerusalem and the contested Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. "We've already made peace with Egypt and Jordan and Israel's hand is extended in peace to all our neighbors, including the Palestinians". "And (Trump) really does want to work together with Israel in countering the threat from Jihadist Islam".

- Clashes broke out between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces on Wednesday as Israeli demonstrators marched through the Old City of Jerusalem to mark the 50th anniversary of Israel's capture of the city's eastern half.

In what has been interpreted as a swipe at PA incitement, Trump insisted, "Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded".

U.S. President Donald Trump delivers an statement about missile strikes on a Syrian airbase, at his Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., April 6, 2017.

Is it just me, or is it unnerving that the commander of the world's largest nuclear arsenal is unable to recognise what subcontinent he's on?

Tillerson says Trump put "a lot of pressure" on Netanyahu and Abbas to revive peace talks.
