"I will call them from now on losers because that's what they are".

"So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, [were] murdered by evil losers in life", he continued.

Reporter Joshua Mitnick's interesting dispatch ahead of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas meeting with President Donald Trump correctly noted Israeli skepticism towards Mr. Abbas as a "partner for peace".

In his first attempt at shuttle diplomacy, Mr. Trump met on Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, urging him to strike a peace deal with the Palestinian Authority. Tonight, Trump is flying to the Vatican, where he's slated to meet with Pope Francis on Wednesday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the USA has increased its military aid to Tel Aviv by tens of millions of dollars. "That's like if your wife said "Are you having an affair" and you said 'I am NOT sleeping with Jenna!'"

The suicide bomber detonated an explosive device near an exit to the 21,000-person capacity Manchester Arena where U.S. pop star Ariana Grande was performing to a sold-out audience.

Yesterday, Mr Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to visit Jerusalem's Western Wall, one of Judaism's holiest sites.

The worldwide community regards all Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories as illegal and a major obstacle to Middle East peace.

Trump steered through the complex political terrain of the Middle East and strengthened alliances by repeating simple messages.

Standing next to Abbas, Trump said, "If Israel and the Palestinians can make peace, it will begin a process of peace all throughout the Middle East", and that such an event "would be an incredible accomplishment".

Much of central and southern Jerusalem was shut down to allow the presidential motorcade of around 60 vehicles to make its way from Mr Trump's hotel to the town, just eight km to the south.

"I think the president has indicated he's willing to put his own personal efforts into this if the Israelis and the Palestinians are ready to be serious about engaging as well".

With the Middle East leg of his trip complete, Trump arrived in Italy Tuesday. "Never mentioned the word 'Israel'".

This would represent a notable gain by Trump in his bid to restart peace talks, as Abbas until now has set preconditions for a return to peace talks, including an Israeli freeze on settlement building.
