In Tel Aviv, Trump Calls For Peace Between Israel And Palestine

Trump who had previously lambasted countries that "benefit from USA largess" and want to get "a free ride", is now fanning the flames of antagonism with Tehran for the sake of "the geopolitical interests" of the two Middle Eastern allies, he added.

At the end of his appearance with Netanyahu, Trump said that he "never mentioned the word or the name Israel" in his conversation with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador.

"Terrorism has spread all across the world".

U.S. president Donald Trump said he never mentioned "the word or the name Israel" during a recent conversation with top Russian diplomats.

"But we need two willing parties", he said then.

Urging countries to deny terrorists space to operate, Trump said, "The first task in this joint effort is for your nations to deny all territory to the foot soldiers of evil. every country in the region has an absolute duty to ensure that terrorists find no sanctuary on their soil".

The moment was abrupt interruption of an otherwise warm and smooth welcome for Trump to the Holy Land.

"A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and drive out the extremists". Some Palestinians said they were disappointed by the omission.

President Trump closed arms deals in Saudi Arabia, before jetting off to Israel where he will conduct further security talks.

Trump is seeking to ease concerns that his policies won't be as beneficial to Israel as once believed.

He said Friday´s election in Iran that saw Rouhani convincingly defeat hardline challenger Ebrahim Raisi had been a message to the world that Tehran was ready for engagement.

Defense stocks lifted Wall Street to begin the week after Donald Trump's first leg of a trip overseas resulted in billions of dollars worth of deals. He is slowing the flow of people crossing our border, arresting gang members, meeting with world leaders to build alliances for a more peaceful world, attacking ISIS worldwide, establishing fair world trade, creating jobs, bringing companies back to America, cutting taxes, lowering unemployment rates. The agreements include a $110 billion Saudi-funded defence purchase.

The US president, who used to speak against the Saudi monarchy, has now changed his mind and is trying to "shore up US influence in the region by supplying the kingdom with an unlimited amount of arms to pursue its policy of military confrontation with Iran", said the Santa Cruz-based political commentator, asserting that the Republican administration views Tehran as its "principle enemy and Saudi Arabia as its principle ally" in the region.
