White House website captions Trump livestream as coming from 'Jerusalem, Israel'

Last week, according to a New York Times report, two USA officials, one current and one former, said Trump shared the intelligence supplied by Israel in the fight against Islamic State with the Russian officials during an Oval Office meeting earlier this month, which the American press was barred from attending.

US President Donald Trump travelled to Jerusalem yesterday to seek ways to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace, but also used the visit to again lash out at Iran.

People familiar with Trump's trip said United States officials might offer a subtle gesture to recognize Israel's strong feelings about Jerusalem being its eternal capital.

Trump asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what protocol was as they approached the dais before delivering their speeches.

President Trump has landed in Israel for the second leg of his nine-day trip overseas, which started in Saudi Arabia and will end in Italy.

The visit there drew controversy before Mr Trump even left Washington, when United States officials declined to say whether it belonged to Israel.

The Trump administration has caused a stir within Israel over the last week after a person on the advance team told Israeli officials that the wall was in the West Bank.

JERUSALEM (AP) - Even before President Donald Trump began his trip to Israel, he already may have made history.

Trump left for Jerusalem immediately after the welcome ceremony for his meeting with Rivlin at the President's House amid heightened security with all the major roads in Jerusalem completely gridlocked.

"The wall is part of Jerusalem", he told reporters onboard Air Force One while the president was en route to Israel from Saudi Arabia.

BETHLEHEM, Palestinian Territories: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday condemned the "evil losers" behind a bomb attack at a pop concert in the British city of Manchester that killed at least 22 people.

The walled Old City lies in East Jerusalem, which was captured by Israel from Jordan in the Six-Day War 50 years ago.

Police forces patrolled the empty streets decorated with USA and Palestinian flags and a large poster welcomed the president as "the man of peace".

He was accompanied on Monday (Tuesday NZ Time) by the Rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinowitz, who said on Israel Radio that he recited two psalms with the U.S. leader. Instead of recognizing Israel's sovereign capital, Tillerson used the embassy dilemma as a bargaining chip for a future "peace initiative" with the Palestinians.

In a statement, the group said on Sunday the Palestinian factions "affirm their rejection of the American position, which is biased in favour of the occupation". Nonetheless, he and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have said that they are hoping for a larger peace deal throughout the region.
