President Trump arrived in Israel on Monday for a 36-hour visit intended to make progress toward regional peace. Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to visit the sacred Western Wall in Jerusalem, and he also met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "We have before us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region. ... But we can only get there working together," Trump said. He will meet Tuesday in the West Bank with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. When he hosted Abbas at the White House earlier this month, Trump said Mideast peace is "something that I think is, frankly, maybe not as difficult as people have thought over the years."
