President Donald Trump has paid his respects at the Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray.
Wearing a black skullcap, Trump walked slowly toward the wall and pressed his right hand flat against the stone for about 30 seconds. He then tucked a prayer note into a deep crevice. His wife and daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, visited the women’s section of the wall.
The site in Jerusalem’s Old City in east Jerusalem was at the center of a recent spat between the two allies following the U.S refusal to say it is part of Israel.
Before visiting the Wall, Trump visited the Church of the Holy Supulchre. It’s believed to be where Jesus was crucified, and where his tomb is located.
Trump is on his first visit to Israel as president.
But Ivanka Trump did something that will make you cry tears of joy!
The president’s daughter Ivanka, who is an Orthodox Jew, and wife Melania, visited the women-only area of the wall, each tucking her own note in the wall. The first daughter appeared to shed a tear as she took a moment of reflection at the wall, the last remnant of the Second Temple, which was destroyed in 70 CE.
Yes, you read well tears because we have a first family with feelings, not criminals!
The entourage was greeted at the Western Wall by the site’s rabbi, Shmuel Rabinovich and Mordechai Elias, director general of the Western Wall Heritage Foundation.

Before heading to the wall, the president and his family made a brief stop at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built at the site where Christians believe Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected.
This is what we have waited for years a first family with Christian values!
Are you proud of Ivanka Trump and our first family?
