Trump lands in Israel in pursuit of peace deal | Daily Mail Online

Trump lands in Israel in pursuit of peace deal | Daily Mail Online: Trump arrived in Jerusalem on Monday afternoon to meet Israel's president and prime minister after a two-day triumph in Saudi Arabia
On Tuesday he will meet Palestinian Authority President Abbas in Bethlehem
Trump has called Middle East peace 'the ultimate deal' and is using his son-in-law Jared Kushner's expertise and Orthodox Jewish connections to work on it
Trump has worried Israelis, however, with the softening of his enthusiasm for settlement building in the West Bank
And he is keen to sell arms to Muslim nations including the Saudis, already racking up more than $100 billion in orders this weekend
Trump said Iran's nuclear saber rattling has brought 'a different feeling toward Israel' from some countries that have been cool to the Jewish state
'There's a great feeling for peace throughout the Middle East,' he said; 'People have just had enough. They've had enough of the bloodshed and the killing'
Trump became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem
