White House puts 'Jerusalem, Israel' on website

"Never mentioned the word Israel".

Trump paused in front of the wall and then slipped a note with a prayer between its stones, as is custom. He sent a signal of solidarity to an ally he's pushing to work harder toward peace with the Palestinians.

After Israel, Trump's marathon maiden foreign trip will take him to the Vatican for an audience with Pope Francis, to Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and to Sicily for a meeting of leaders of the Group of Seven major industrial nations.

The information was reportedly gathered by a spy embedded within the terrorist group that was working on behalf of Israel, although USA and Israeli authorities have neither confirmed nor denied the source was linked to Israel.

Speaking over the noise of the president's jet, Sara Netanyahu added: "I talk every place about how great you are", she said, and Netanyahu backed her up saying: "I can testify to that".

Trump's tour comes in the shadow of difficulties at home, where he is struggling to contain a scandal after firing James Comey as Federal Bureau of Investigation director almost two weeks ago.

The moment was an abrupt interruption of an otherwise warm and smooth welcome for Trump to the Holy Land. He also knows that Netanyahu is well aware of the reporting that Trump passed along information from Israel to the Russians and wants to publicly combat the issue.

Trump landed in Israel on Monday for meetings with Israeli leaders before he will travel to Bethlehem to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

A White House official blamed Trump's fatigue for the switch. "It's never been better", he said.

"It won't be simple", Netanyahu said.

Bibi NetanyahuI: "Yeah, he was here the first time when he was six".

Trump's visit Monday was laden with religious symbolism.

Before meeting Netanyahu, Trump visited the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem where according to Christian tradition Jesus was buried and resurrected.

Trump is the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall, and the first president to visit Israel so early in his term.

Melania Trump: "It can only make you stronger, that's all". The family was separated by gender.

The Israeli president emphasised that while the world, the Middle East, and Israel all need a strong United States, "the United States also needs a strong Israel".

The White House struggled to answer the question.

Accompanied by his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, Trump reportedly swayed back and forth as he touched his hand to the wall.

Gulf Arab countries long have been suspicious about Iran, and the Obama administration's nuclear negotiations furthered their worries about Iran's regional intentions.

After it was revealed that Israel had supplied the intelligence, Danny Yatom, a former chief of the Israeli spy agency Mossad, warned that Israel should "think twice" before "conveying very sensitive information".

The call for mobilisation was put out by a group calling itself the Supreme National Leadership Committee, which includes various Palestinian political factions, including Abbas's Fatah movement.
