But for Trump, under siege at home over questions about his administration's links to Russian Federation and his firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey, it is a particularly demanding itinerary, especially for a first overseas venture.
"No Israeli leaders will join President Trump to the Western Wall", National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters at a press briefing where he outlined Trump's schedule for his upcoming four-stop trip to the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, and Europe. While Israel thinks of Jerusalem as its capital, the global community does not honor this claim.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had promised to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, but some senior officials in Washington have reportedly advised against it, saying it would be "harmful to the peace process and carry broader regional risks".
Since the announcement of the president's travel plans, there has been some speculation that he would use the occasion to fulfill his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
In the Oval Office interview with Israel Hayom, Trump repeated his belief that he would be able to achieve a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
Trump intends to visit the Western Wall too, something past presidents have not done because of the political sensitivities. "Now is the time to honor our friend and fully recognize Jerusalem as the eternal, undivided capital of Israel", said Michael in a statement, according to The Daily Caller.
As a result, the U.S. State Department turned down a request for Netanyahu to accompany Trump and his family when they visit the site on Monday.
No serving United States president has ever visited the Western Wall, because U.S. policy has been that the final status of Jerusalem has yet to be resolved in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. The area, captured by Israel in 1967, is not sovereign Israeli territory and Palestinians there are not Israeli citizens and do not have the right to vote.
In the poll of 500 Jewish-Israeli adults conducted this week for The Jerusalem Post, 56 percent said they considered the Trump administration more pro-Israel than pro-Palestinian.
On Tuesday Trump will meet with Abbas in Bethlehem rather than at P.A. headquarters in Ramallah. While the president hasn't clearly backed a two-state solution - Israel and a Palestinian state - he is expected to voice support for Palestinian "self-determination", a phrase that nods in the direction of an independent Palestinian state.
Last night (Thursday), the Israel Police, the Shin Bet and personal security services trained and prepared for US President Donald Trump's visit in three days. He has set aside 15 minutes for the visit, unlike previous presidents who spent an hour or more at the site.
