JERUSALEM — President Trump said Tuesday that both Israel and Palestine are ready to "reach for peace" in their decades-long conflict, and that he is personally committed to achieving what he calls "the ultimate deal."
But after a 28-hour stop in Israel that included separate meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Trump left Jerusalem without putting forward any specific proposals, road maps or next steps for that peace to happen. He sidestepped the issue of Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory, something he and President Obama have both said are unhelpful to the peace process.
And Trump also left one of his campaign promises — a pledge to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — unfulfilled.
