jerusalem - Donald Trump visited Monday the first US President to visit the Holy Wailing Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. Television shows showed Trump accompanied by a Jewish clergyman. Then he went to the wall alone and closed his hand with closed eyes.
Trump carried a racket, a Jewish head cover at the Wailing Wall. He also placed a prayer letter in the wall. Around this visit with great symbolic meaning has been quite a bit. The visit is labeled privately so that Israel can not see it as a sign for its claim to Jerusalem as an eternal and indivisible capital. Trump was also not accompanied by politicians.
American diplomats had said for the trip that the Cloister Wall is not in Israel but on the Palestinian West Bank. Later the White House distanced itself from this.
