Watch: White House presents Trump’s schedule abroad, Israel shown without West BankThe White House published a short video of the schedule of US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Middle East and Europe. However, in the video, Israel’s map is shown without the West Bank and the Golan Heights and doesn’t mention Trump’s visit to the Western Wall.
Yesterday (Thursday), ahead of US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Middle East, the White House published a short video of the visit’s schedule. In the video, Israel is shown without the West Bank and the Golan Heights.
In the short video that was published on the White House’s Facebook page, it said that while in Israel, Trump will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, participate in a wreath laying ceremony at Yad Vashem and speak at the Israel Museum. Trump will also meet with the President of the Palestinian National Authority Mahmoud Abbas. In addition, Trump’s visit to the Western Wall is not in the video.
Earlier this week, a senior US administration official stated that the Western Wall is part of the West Bank. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer responded: “The comments about the Western Wall were not authorized communication and they do not represent the position of the United States and certainly not of the president.”
Today, Trump will depart for his first visit abroad since entering office. He will fly to Saudi Arabia, then arrive in Israel on Monday and from there continue to a meeting with Pope Francis in Vatican City. Finally, Trump will end the visit at the G7 Summit of the world’s leading industrialized democracies.
