Image of Donald Trump touching glowing orb sparks Twitter frenzy

President Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia was a step in the right direction but must be followed up with action, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton wrote Sunday. And at the end of the trip, as I was getting back on the plane, the security guards from the Saudi side who were helping us over the weekend all wanted to pose for a big photo op and then they gave me two enormous bushels of dates as a present, a thank-you for the trip that we had had.

"The United States and Israel can declare with one voice that Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon - never ever - and must cease its deadly funding and training of terrorists and militias".

Donald Trump's vision of a Middle East peace process driven by an enhanced relationship between Israel and the Sunni Arab.

He noted that the support of the United States and its allies for terrorists in the region is so obvious that no one believes the allegations of accusing others of terrorism. Netanyahu too chose to forget how Trump had recently leaned too heavily in favor of the Palestinian Authority's Mahmoud Abbas. Trump's Israel visit comes after he delivered a powerful speech at the Arab-Islamic-American summit in Riyadh on Sunday.

During Sunday's speech, when Trump said the USA was "not here to tell other people how to live,"it was seen by some as a sign of weakness".

Later on Monday, he will pray at Judaism's Western Wall and visit the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, and on Tuesday he will travel to Bethlehem.

Mr Trump has also retreated from a campaign pledge to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, bending to the same diplomatic and security concerns as other presidents who have made similar promises. He has taken a tougher line on settlements than Israeli officials had expected, urging restraint though not calling for a full halt to construction.




The ministry spokesman also called on the U.S.to stop "warmongering" policies in the region.

"This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects or different civilisations", Trump said. He did not elaborate and it is not clear how big the plan is.

And yet, here we are, watching Trump's daughter raising money by accepting a sizable charitable contribution from Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

Israel considers the entire city to be its capital while the global community says the future of east Jerusalem, claimed by the Palestinians, must be resolved through negotiations.

When he met Abbas earlier this month in Washington, he stopped shortly of explicitly recommitting his administration to a two-state solution to the decades-old conflict, a long-standing foundation of USA policy.

"Nothing helps you learn and understand people better than coming to their homes, where they live and seeing them face to face, seeing their families, and seeing their communities, finding out we all share the same wants and desires for ourselves and our people, and our families - peace, prosperity, we want our children to grow up without fear", he said. After years of butting heads with Trump's predecessor, Netanyahu celebrated a new American president's arrival as a moment of hope in the stalled peace talks between Israel and Palestinians.
