Press corps on Trump trip hearing little from the president

I look forward to working closely with you to confront the dangers we face together in this violent and volatile Middle East. ... Those events changed the landscape of a carefully crafted series of meetings.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump exchanged pleasantries with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife before boarding Air Force One.

Police also ejected several Jewish visitors who bowed in prayer, in violation of a longstanding ban on Jewish worship at the site.

Amidst all the hullabaloo and speculation that she's unhappy, it should be noted that the couple have been seen holding each other's hands several times during the trip, including in Saudi Arabia.

The White House claims the President was unaware that Israel was the source. Trump doled out praise for Israel, spoke predictably of the "unshakable" U.S. -Israel bond, stressed that the "ties of the Jewish People to this holy land are ancient and eternal", and promised a harder stance against terrorism, naming Hamas and Hezbollah specifically. "Never mentioned the word Israel", Trump reiterated.
