"I believe peace is within reach if we dare to believe the future can be different from the past". "It's great practice for Kushner, because next week he has to do an oral report in social studies".

When the Trump administration announced its intention to move its US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, global leaders and foreign-policy experts predicted an early end to Jared Kushner's "ultimate deal". "That we are not condemned to relive history, and that the way things were is not how they must forever be".

Over on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah had fun with an old clip of Trump at a time when he briefly considered not moving the embassy to Jerusalem. "It's true: Israel is not alone. They're the angry ones", he started off.

A hail of bullets killed at least 58 Palestinians along the border fence between Israel and Gaza, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

Kushner didn't ignore the developments in Gaza, saying, "these frightening violence are a part of the issue and never a part of the answer".

"Now, the president couldn't be there himself because, you know, the angry people, so instead, he sent Peace-Treaty Barbie and Collusion Ken", joked Colbert of Javanka. Both were sat next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the opening ceremony.

"During his speech today, Jared Kushner credited President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel", Meyers said.

Buhari, the first sub-Saharan Africa president to meet Trump since he was sworn in in January 2017, travelled to the U.S. for bilateral talks on the invitation of the American president.

U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman, Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin, White Home senior adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump, and particular consultant for worldwide negotiations Jason Greenblatt additionally attended the ceremony as a part of the USA delegation.
