Trump in Israel for talks with Netanyahu and Abbas


US President Donald J. Trump has arrived in Israel in pursuit of what he calls ‘the ultimate deal.’

That is peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

He has yet to offer any details on how that can be achieved in the current climate.

He will visit two sites in Jerusalem, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Christians claim that Christ was crucified, buried and resurrected.

He will then move on to the Western Wall, a holy site where Jews pray in East Jerusalem.

Following that Trump will hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The pair are expected to discuss security ties and deepening relations.

On Tuesday he will meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
