Ivanka and Jared are both orthodox Jews and were reportedly granted special permission to board the Air Force One on Friday when the U.S. president left the USA for the nine-day journey.
The U.S. President admonished them that rather than allow themselves to become terrorists, they should build a new era of prosperity for themselves and their people.
Trump arrived in Tel Aviv earlier Monday and is due to hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later in the day.
President Donald Trump is building a "framework of an Arab NATO" during his visit to the Middle East, Ret. Gen. Jack Keane told Fox News on Sunday.
Trump's first stop was a meeting in Jerusalem with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.
"Terrorism has spread all across the world", Trump said. USA president tries to spread Iranophobia and makes false statements to reach arms deals... He's taken a tougher than expected line on settlements, saying he doesn't believe they help the peace process, though he's stopped short of calling for a full construction freeze.
Israel considers the entire city to be its capital while the global community says the future of east Jerusalem, claimed by the Palestinians, must be resolved through negotiations.
"There is still much work to be done", Trump said.
It began with a tweet from Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca Ballhaus, who gave the impression Ivanka controlled the fund, even though her own publication reported that "Ms.Trump doesn't control it or raise money for it", according to the Daily Caller. The demonstrations are meant to draw attention to a month-long hunger strike by hundreds of prisoners being held by Israel and to protest what many Palestinians say is unfair US support for Israel.
"Two days after Iranian [presidential] election..." He also delivered a closely watched speech to the Muslim world in which he called for Middle East leaders to root out extremists at home, while casting the fight against terror as "good vs. evil" rather than the West vs. Islam.
Human rights didn't go completely unnoticed on Trump's trip.
Trump's remarks were his latest salvo against Iran since starting his first foreign trip after taking office.
