Donald Trump - The First Sitting US President To Visit Jerusalem's "Western Wall"


On May 22, 2017 Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to visit Israel's historic "Western Wall" (a.k.a. Kotel, a.k.a. "Wailing Wall"). In addition, his wife, Melania, and his daughter, Ivanka, also joined him there.

This is in stark contrast to the last administration. Obama, from the beginning of his tenure to its end, treated Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu with disdain and disrespect.

The Trump family also visited The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

Here are a few, short video clips of the Trump family's visit to the Kotel & the Church.

As a kind of interesting aside here, the various Christian groups that "own" The Church of the Holy Sepulchre could never agree on which Christian sect would operate and control the site. So, they got together and chose a Muslim couple to run the place. Ecumenical decision if ever there was one.

Shortly after these visits President Trump and the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, gave speeches. Click Here for those remarks.
