President Trump is the first U.S sitting president to visit the Western Wall in Israel. He did so without any Israeli government officials by him even though that is what Israel requested. During this foreign visit Trump is trying to clear the air with Israel and the news that he leaked information to the Russians about Israel. He also promised to recognize Jerusalem has the capital of Israel throughout his campaign even though the U.S has never took that claim due to the conflicts between Palestine and Israel. He did not fulfill that promise (yet) due to warnings from foreign policy folks in Washington and Arab leaders because it could hurt chances of finding peace between the two regions.
