Meeting with Abbas, Trump calls Manchester attackers 'evil losers'

He said he thought the trip showcased the importance of the U.S. -Israel relationship.

But while Mr Trump spoke in generalities about the goal, Mr Abbas laid out the specifics of Palestinian demands - which all have been supported by the Arabs and rejected by Israel through decades of unsuccessful peace negotiations shepherded by American presidents.

He added, "First the two-state solution must exist and be implemented". Trump and Netanyahu never talked about a two-state solution to the problem, but Abbas did. "It is between us and occupation".

In his speech yesterday, Mr Trump seemed to acknowledge the complexities of the matter.

U.S. President Donald Trump delivers an statement about missile strikes on a Syrian airbase, at his Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., April 6, 2017.

Grant Rumley, an expert on Palestinian politics at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), told Jewish Insider, "This type of language harkens back to the Bush administration era concept of 'linkage, ' whereby solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would somehow unlock regional peace".

JOHN YANG: Missing from Mr. Trump's comments? The second affirms that the US will not support a two-state solution if either party refuses to recognize the other's right to exist.

Even though candidate Trump promised to move the embassy, news reports indicate that President Trump is expected to re-sign a reoccurring waiver at the end of this month, that would keep the Embassy in Tel Aviv for now.

"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".

Beigelman thought the trip illustrated that the bond between the USA and Israel is a bipartisan relationship. Bush tried. Obama tried. "I look forward to working with these leaders toward a lasting peace".

"I want to send our condolences to the many families who lost their loved ones", Trump said.

"We stand in absolute solidarity with the people of the United Kingdom", Trump wrote Tuesday morning in a tweet.

"And since both sides see a benefit to that, you're not seeing a lot of outcry or opposition that you would otherwise", he said.

Trump visited the Israel Museum and the Yad Vashem Holocaust remembrance center on Tuesday and now heads to Italy and later is expected to meet with Pope Francis.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Words can never describe the bottomless depths of that evil or the scope of the anguish and destruction.

The President's words came as he visited Bethlehem during a visit to the Middle East.

Tonight, the president is in Rome, where, tomorrow, he is to meet Pope Francis.
