Donald Trump says Palestinians and Israelis are 'ready for peace'

25 May 2017

Abbas called on Israel to accept the demands for better conditions by hundreds of imprisoned Palestinians who have been on a hunger strike for 37 days.

"The Palestinians are ready to reach for peace. One needs to seize it, show leadership and boldness, and we will help them".

Two separate hand swat incidents between US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have been captured on camera during their first official visit overseas, raising speculations about first family troubles. "I would like to reiterate our commitment to co-operate with you in order to make peace and forge an historic peace deal with the Israelis", he said.

Trump also visited Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust memorial, on Tuesday. I am telling you, that's what I do.

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

Trump added that dealmaking "is what I do".

Israeli right-wingers got what they saw as a major endorsement for their policies when US President Donald Trump failed to publicly mention a Palestinian state even one time during his two-day visit.

On Tuesday, First Lady Melania coolly snubbed Trump as they stepped off the presidential plane in the Italian capital Rome.

Trump's visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories is part of his first trip overseas as president.

"And as you said this morning, Mr. President, funding and rewarding terrorism must end", Netanyahu said.

Mr. Trump's comments of peace and security come after a deadly explosion left 22 dead at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England Monday evening. "Today, this right, ultra-right-wing government has frozen settlement construction and has given Palestinians construction in Area C", Herzog said, referring to recent moves by Netanyahu's conservative governing coalition.

During the trip, White House aides downplayed hopes any significant progress on reviving the long-stalled peace negotiations can be made, describing the President's first trip to the region as "symbolic".

In a statement following his call with British Prime Minister Theresa May, Mr. Trump reassured the Prime minister that "Ameircans stand with the people of the United Kingdom" and offered aid in the UK's investigation into the attack.
