On Monday, U.S. President Donald Trump will land in Israel for a historic visit, his first trip to the country since he entered the Oval Office in January. Along with senior members of his administration, his wife, daughter and son-in-law will be accompanying him. The official visit is set to begin at 11:00 AM, when Trump’s Air Force One is expected to land at Ben-Gurion Airport. From the airport, Trump will fly via helicopter to his first stop in Jerusalem- the President’s Residence, where a celebratory welcoming party will be held.

From the President’s Residence, the Trump family will travel to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall. They will then make their way to the King David Hotel for a two-hour rest period. 233 rooms will be rented for Trump’s team. Foreign reporters and the other delegations will stay at two nearby hotels.

The Trump family will attend a celebratory dinner at the Prime Minister’s Residence in the evening. Israeli chef Moshe Segev will cook the dinner and singer Shiri Maimon will perform for the guests.
