Trump pledges solidarity with United Kingdom as he condemns 'evil losers' behind attack

Trump touts ultimate peace but same obstacles remain

We'll have more on Trump's visit to Israel and Palestine after headlines.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday decisively spoke about Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem and the Jewish people's connection to the capital.

Still, both sides have to be cautious about how they deal with Kushner.

While speaking next to Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday, Trump said, "I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack and to the many killed and the families, so many families, of the victims.

In Bethlehem, some Palestinians joked that the visit's main achievement was that the municipality had cleaned the streets beforehand, said Akram Al Ayassa, an official with a Palestinian government commission. "The president notably avoided all of the thorny issues that have stymied peace efforts for decades", The Associated Press noted.

Rome is Trump's next stop where he will meet the Catholic Church's Pope Francis.

"That Palestinians have to negotiate their freedom and prove ourselves worthy of freedom is repugnant", Buttu added, arguing that Trump should use its multi-billion dollar financial support to Israel as weight to pressure it from ending its occupation of Palestinian territory.

Trump and Netanyahu in particular lavished praise on each other during their multiple meetings.

It was the final speech of his Israel trip at the Israel Museum where the president really connected with Israelis, scoring a direct bull's eye.

Yet some Israeli officials are less certain of Trump. "The Arab leaders who you met yesterday could help change the atmosphere, and they could help create the conditions for a realistic peace".

In the new clip, both Mr Trump and Melania can be seen emerging from the plane and giving those gathered at Rome's Fiumicino Airport a lengthy wave.

"We are keen to keep the door open to dialogue with our Israeli neighbors from all walks of life".

After his meeting with Abbas, Trump returned to Jerusalem for a solemn tribute to the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust.

The White House said Trump was updated on the attack in Manchester, England by his national security team in Israel.

The president said the attack, believed to be carried out by a suicide bomber, was especially heinous because it took the lives of many children and teens attending a concert. ISIS later claimed responsibility for the attack, describing the perpetrator as a "soldier of the caliphate" who planted bombs "in the middle of Crusaders gatherings". He wouldn't go as far as calling the perpetrators "monsters", he said, because they would probably "think that's a great name".

A cloud hung over preparations for the visit, since less than a week before credible reports suggested that Israel had been the source of the intelligence that Trump passed to Russian Federation.

Mr Trump approached alone and placed his hand on the stone. He ran the trip in a way that, if he were a less bold and less strong-armed president, would have led to irritation and anger on the Israeli side. Washington has never recognised Israeli sovereignty over parts of the Old City seized in the 1967 war.

President Bill Clinton presided over the moment in 1993 at the White House when Yasser Arafat and Yitzhak Rabin exchanged a historic handshake and signed the Oslo peace agreement.
