Trump praised Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's trip organizing skills during a meeting in Jerusalem with Rivlin.
'Never mentioned Israel'Speaking to the press alongside Netanyahu Monday, Trump sought to defend himself against criticism that he provided Israeli intelligence to Russian Federation.
Pollock also said the Palestinians may not make much of a fuss if Washington made a decision to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem - the city that is sacred to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said President Donald Trump's optimism on reaching a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians was not likely to happen. Arab media have been overwhelmingly supportive of the president's speech and visit.
The president has been trying to calibrate his expectations for peace.
KEITH: Trump and his aides believe that single, unified voice could be the key to peace in the Middle East and beyond.
"Once again we reassert to you our positions", Abbas said elaborating, "accepting the two-state solution along the borders of 1967, a state of Palestine with a capital in East Jerusalem alongside Israel and resolving longstanding issues based on worldwide law and agreements in accordance with Arab peace initiative". A settlement will mean finding solutions to centuries-old issues of land, faith and race.
"This is what I've spent the last few days talking about during my trip overseas", Trump said.
Trump was elected on a promise of extracting the United States from the region with honor but he now seemed to be signing Washington up to an even more intense commitment to the policies he previously execrated, Dal Santo observed.
"We are not talking about any of the substantive issues that would lead us towards a peace deal, not talking about Palestinian sovereignty, statehood, an end of the settlements or an end of the blockade [on Gaza]". Jerusalem is claimed by Palestinians for the future state they want to build, and isn't recognized internationally as Israel's capital.
"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.
"The conflict is not between religions", Mr. Abbas said.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday slammed the perpetrators behind Monday night's suicide bomb attack in Manchester, England, that claimed 22 lives and injured almost 60 other people.
He didn't talk about a two-state solution. No three-way meeting between leaders. I say the focus on the problem is wrong-headed. "Certainly, one of the reasons the concept of an "outside-in" approach has fallen out of favor with this White House is that Arab leaders have communicated their reticence to bring their covert relationships with Israel to light without advancement on the Palestinian front". It comes after Trump urged leaders in the Middle East to seize a "rare" opportunity to overcome past rifts to join together for peace and stability and to unite against a common threat: Terrorism.
Standing alongside Trump, Abbas, 82 and in the 12th year of his original five-year term, said he was determined to deliver an agreement for all Palestinians, although he did not provide any substance on how such an objective could be achieved, reported Reuters.
Israeli forces moved in, and clashes ensued with the Palestinian protesters.
The status of Jerusalem is ultra-sensitive and has been among the most hard issues in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, stalled since April 2014. She admired Trump's business success, but she said, that doesn't translate into making someone a peacemaker.
The trip also managed to produce plenty of awkward moments involving Trump and his administration - there were some unfortunate typos, a failed attempt at holding the first lady's hand (which went viral) and two geographic flubs. "I truly do. But I'm not very optimistic".
