Camera captures Melania swatting away Donald Trump's hand at Israel arrival

Users also had a field day when a video surfaced on Monday, appearing to show Melania swatting her husband away when he reaches to grab her hand as they exit Air Force One in Israel. Rex Tillerson's Urging That The Saudi Arms Deal Shouldn't Concern Israelis Most recently the $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia, orchestrated by Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, was the final straw for numerous Israeli officials who had to be forced to attend Trump events.

"Bennett welcomes Trump on his first visit to Israel", a spokesperson for the minister said.

Security was tight, with the usually bustling Old City, where the Western Wall is located, essentially on lockdown and the plaza leading to the site cleared.

In the nearby Jewish Quarter, barriers had been erected to make viewing the square impossible from ground level, and some residents said they had been told not to go onto their roofs overlooking the Western Wall. Trump also continue to say that a peace deal can be hashed out between Israelis and Palestinians, but would not clarify how he plans to do this. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had to order his Cabinet ministers to attend the brief ceremony and tried to shove one parliamentarian out of the way as he asked Mr Trump for a selfie. Many were convinced that a change in US policy toward Israel was imminent, not least because the President's three main advisers on Israel were modern Orthodox Jews with ties to West Bank settlements. Under strict interpretation of Jewish law, men and women must pray separately there. Salman, said Trump, "really wants to see great things happen for the world", and he and other leaders he met voiced grave concerns over Islamic State and Iran's "rising ambitions".

Rabinovitz presented him with a gold-leafed Book of Psalms stamped with the president's name, according to pictures released by the holy site's administration. "It's never been better", Netanyahu said alongside Trump in Jerusalem.

"It will leave an impression on me for ever".

US President Donald Trump has insisted that he "never mentioned" Israel in a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at which he reportedly shared highly classified information from a foreign partner.

The status of Jerusalem is ultra-sensitive and has been among the most hard issues in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.

Israel occupied east Jerusalem, where the Western Wall is located, and the West Bank in 1967 in moves never recognized by the global community.

The Trump family walked to the wall from the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the holiest sites in Christianity, which they visited first, arriving there on foot from the Jaffa Gate.

Perhaps the most frequently cited argument for a regional process is that the Palestinians have little of value to offer, and by bringing in the Arab states the Trump Administration can "expand the pie" and elicit greater concessions from Israel.

The traditional American position has been that Jerusalem's status must be negotiated between the two sides.

The meeting was held at the President's Residency in Jerusalem, which started Trump's two-day visit to Israel and the West Bank. The trip ends on Saturday after visits to the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily.

Barack Obama previously visited the Western Wall as a presidential candidate, and had his prayer note stolen and published.

"Who can say the region will experience total stability without Iran?"
