Trump in Talks for First Israel Visit Next Month

April 26, 2017

President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are reportedly in the advanced stages of confirming Trump’s first state visit to Israel next month, Israeli media said on Wednesday. Trump has never been to Israel before.

According to the report by Channel 2, the president’s visit to the Jewish state could happen on May 21 or shortly thereafter, coinciding with Trump’s inaugural visit to Europe as president.

While several reports emerged that Trump planned on visiting Israel during the presidential campaign, the trip never happened.

The two world leaders first met in an official state meeting in February, when Netanyahu paid a visit to the White House. Trump and Netanyahu gave a joint press conference which seemed to indicate that the close relationship with Israel Trump had promised during the campaign was off to a strong beginning.

His early visit, less than six months into his presidency, represents a marked departure from his predecessor President Barack Obama, who waited until his second term in office to come to Israel.

Trump is scheduled to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Washington on May 3. His administration has said that it is seeking a “conflict-ending” deal between Israel and the Palestinians.
