In Trump's private moments, it is small talk and compliments

In Trump's private moments, it is small talk and compliments

"I make this promise to you". "I like you too", he joked.

"We are ready to open dialogue with our Israeli neighbours to build confidence and create a real opportunity for peace", he said after talks with Trump. We'll have more on Trump's visit to Israel and Palestine after headlines. "Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace".

Donald Trump has told of his hopes for Middle East peace after travelling to Bethlehem for talks with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas.

US -sponsored peace talks between the Palestinians and Israel collapsed in 2014 over the latter's refusal to halt settlement activity in the occupied territories.

"Making peace, however, will not be easy".

President Donald Trump voiced optimism today about a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, but Florida Sen.

Trump has yet to clarity if he still supports a two-state solution, whether he remains opposed to Israeli settlements or if he has nixed his controversial plan to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem. "We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom", Trump said, in his first comment on the Monday night attack at a concert Manchester, England.

Trump called America's security cooperation with Israel "bigger than ever", and a difference from the Obama administration.

"When Trump was elected, the settlers here celebrated and were sure they were going for annexation". He said that the Palestinians' problem is with the occupation and Israel's position of not recognising the Palestinian state. "I look forward to working with these leaders toward a lasting peace", he added.

"Peace doesn't always have to be Israel severing its land and handing it to its enemies", he said, also praising Trump's stance on Iran. "Believe me", he said to a standing ovation.

Trump said: "So many young handsome innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life". This remark was met with a lingering round of applause and another handshake from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

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.

Trump was considering making that bold announcement during his trip here, but backed off fulfilling that pledge amid a torrent of warnings from USA foreign policy officials and Arab diplomats, who said such a move would hinder peace efforts and set off tensions in the region.

As I have repeatedly said, I'm personally committed to helping Israelis and Palestinians achieve a peace agreement.

He said they killed "so many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives". "Change must come from within - it can only come from within".

Earlier in the trip, he traveled to Saudi Arabia, where he delivered a speech to dozens of leaders from Muslim-majority nations.
