McMaster, Trump's national security adviser, announced that the United States president "will express his desire for dignity and self-determination for the Palestinians" during his upcoming visit to Israel. "We believe Israel is willing, we believe you're willing, and if you both are willing, we're going to make a deal", he said at a joint press conference with Abbas.
Reuters reported on Trump's comments of several weeks ago, when he said "I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians", adding "ask me in month about that", as to whether he will use a late May trip to Israel to declare usa recognition of the entire city of Jerusalem as the Jewish nation's rightful capital.
