Trump was scheduled to visit Yad Vashem, the Israeli Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, and will next travel to Rome, where he will meet with Pope Francis on Wednesday.

Donald Trump (referring to Yair Netanyahu) "And look how he turns out".

In the final remarks that concluded his first visit to the region, U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that peace between Israel and the Palestinians is "possible".

During his visit, Trump is expected to make a push to relaunch long-stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Former President Barack Obama had a rather acrimonious relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and as a result, relations between the United States and Israel became strained during Mr. Obama's term.

"The two leaders commended the Riyadh summit's condemnation of terrorism and extremism and pledged to work together to defeat terrorist organizations", the release said.

During his trip overseas, Trump has criticized Iran while extending an olive branch to Israel and Saudi Arabia.

"Trump including Palestine on his first visit outside the U.S. shows how serious President Trump is in his declared intention to intervene and to help us bring about a lasting and just peace in the Middle East", Dr. Husam Zumlot told i24NEWS.

"I make this promise to you: My administration will always stand with Israel", he said. "In so doing, we will all enjoy a safer and brighter future, and a safer and brighter world", Trump added.

Trump's visit is part of his first trip overseas as president and follows an initial stop in Saudi Arabia, where he urged Islamic leaders to confront extremism while also criticising Iran. "So, we are telling you right now, that Iran will not have nuclear weapons", he said. "The fundamental problem we have here is the definition of peace", the Florida Republican told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day".

It is not a religious conflict, and respecting the Abrahimic religions is an original part of Palestinian beliefs, Abbas stated.

"But behind such optimistic statements were also signs of obstacles in the path for peace between Israel and Palestine, with Netanyahu stating at the start of the speech, "[welcome to] Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the united capital of the Jewish state".

Trump promised to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem while campaigning for president previous year.
