Trump urges Israelis and Palestinians: Make peace

Trump's remarks came during his first foreign trip as president, a sweep of five countries over nine days. NPR's Tamara Keith is traveling with the president.

The White House late Tuesday released a readout of Trump's meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem from earlier that day.

Greater Manchester police said a person detonated a suicide bomb Monday near one of the entrances to Manchester Arena, following an Ariana Grande concert.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers. They were joined by Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, as well as daughter Ivanka Trump and Kushner. "We appreciate this aid and important support very much and yet I'd like to stress this again - history has shown that Israel's security is dependent on our ability to defend ourselves with our own forces against every threat".

"It's not just the Saudis, its also the Emirates, also the Qataris, also the Iranians; they are all acquiring weapons, he said". And it's so interesting that our meeting took place on this very terrible morning of death to innocent young people.

"We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice", the USA leader said.

But the reality remains that both sides are stressing different things.

After talks with Abbas, Trump will travel to Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem and give a speech at the Israel Museum.

The Palestinian president raised the issue of Palestinian detainees, who have been holding a hunger strike for more than a month.

"Muslim nations must be willing to take on the burden, if we are going to defeat terrorism and send its wicked ideology into oblivion". That is completely wrong.

Donald Trump has met with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank as the United States president seeks to restart peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians.

"Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded", Mr. Trump said in reference to the Palestinians' practice of paying cash to terrorists or their families for attacks against Israelis. "Mr. President, I extend my hand to you to be your partner in this noble mission". I am telling you - that's what I do. That's what I do. They all failed at bringing peace. "Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace".

Solving the Mideast peace riddle is the task of Trump's son-in-law and jack-of-all-trades troubleshooter, Jared Kushner. We all know that.

Trump provided few specifics about how a deal might be achieved in a peace process that has been stalled for years.

Even though its worldwide clout has shown signs of waning, the United States, which still exerts more influence in the Middle East than any other country, has a vital role to play in building peace in the region.

During a meeting with President Reuven Rivlin of Israel, Mr Trump started to praise his new Secretary of State Rex Tillerson about the "incredible job" he has done.
