Trump also said that the U.S.is moving its embassy to Jerusalem "ahead of schedule by years", adding that he expected to have a "small version" of the embassy by sometime next year.

The Palestinians, he said, "disrespected us" by not "allowing our great vice president to see them, and we give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid support".

Before leaving for Davos on Tuesday, Netanyahu stated that "it was a great honor to host Vice President Mike Pence in Israel". Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas instead flew to Europe to meet with European Union leaders in Europe in an apparent snub.

Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, and his Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt have been developing a new peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "We took Jerusalem off the table".

"This is not a real estate deal, fundamentally not a real estate deal, but a problem of recognizing Israel's existence", Netanyahu said, "a problem of not recognizing a Jewish state in any boundary, but also has real estate elements and they're - I have to say - very creative".

At a conference in July, Musk said , "I hope it makes it far enough beyond the pad so that it does not cause pad damage". Update: In a tweet following today's test, Elon Musk said the Falcon Heavy launch could take place in about a week.

Zomlot said the Palestinians still seek a two-state solution, but dedicated the majority of his speech to why the USA can no longer help facilitate that outcome.

A spokesman for president Mahmud Abbas said they would not meet with the United States administration until it withdrew its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "But the money is on the table".

Kerry, who took over as Obama's secretary of state when Hillary Clinton vacated the position, confided that deep state insiders in the Department of State and the USA intelligence community do not like President Trump.

According to a leaked account of the meeting, Kerry told Abbas aid Hussein Agha that the Palestinians need to "hold on and be strong" because soon Trump will be gone.

He also defended his decision on Jerusalem. "We took Jerusalem off the table, so we don't have to talk about it anymore. We don't have to talk about it anymore".

15-year-old girl shot at Texas high school
Evacuated students were bused to Stafford Elementary School where they were able to be picked up by parents, according to Joffre. Sheriff's official say a 15 year old girl was hurt and has been airlifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

If the Palestinians decline, they will lose USA aid, the president announced while in Davos, Switzerland.

He again cast the issue in terms of respect. "It could be a city that brings us together or it could create violence that we haven't seen before", said King Abdullah.

Trump and May have had a rocky first year since Trump took power, which included British anger over the US leak of the name of a suicide bomber in Manchester last May.

The entire visit is reportedly scheduled to last for about five hours.

In his speech, President Abbas declared the landmark Oslo Peace Accords dead.
