Harsh exchange between Trump and Netanyahu teams days ahead of key Israel visit

A dramatic rift was created between Washington and Jerusalem as US President Donald Trump’s team as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s team both issued harsh statements on Monday evening less than a week prior to the president’s much-expected visit to Israel.

The drama unfolded when a senior White House official said that the Western Wall was part of the West Bank and not part of Israel’s territory, as Channel 2 reported on Monday.
