The trigger for US-Saudi ties

Palestinians and Muslims may not see how Trump will support their nations, but his actions so far paint a clearer portrait of a president who is not what his critics claim him to be. "He also said the wall was the reason Israel doesn't have any Mexicans". He travels on to Brussels in the afternoon before flying back to Italy late Thursday for a G7 summit on Friday and Saturday.

Washington announced a $110-billion USA sale of ships, tanks and the latest anti-missile systems to Saudi Arabia on Saturday as Trump began a two-day visit to the Gulf state before travelling on to Israel.

The First Lady didn't seem to be interested in walking hand-in-hand with her husband, alongside the Israeli prime minister and his wife.

Abbas said the Palestinians' struggle is not with the Jewish religion, asserting that the "fundamental problem is with the occupation, the settlements and Israel's failure to recognize Palestine". "We solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace dilemma, we start solving a lot of the peace throughout the Middle East region", he explained. "The president notably avoided all of the thorny issues that have stymied peace efforts for decades", The Associated Press noted.

"I had a meeting this morning with President Abbas and can tell you that the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace", Mr Trump said in a speech toward the end of his visit to Israel and the Palestinian territories as part of his maiden trip overseas as president.

In a speech before he flew to Rome for a high-profile meeting with Pope Francis, Trump offered a forceful defence of the Jewish state and pledged to protect the country from Iran. But on the major set pieces, Trump exceeded low expectations.

Both he and Trump wore black kippahs, the skull caps worn by religious Jews and by others as a mark of respect.
