  1. Former president Obama visited the western wall while he was president. Now i know everyone on this website hates him but the fact is he did visit the western wall and i’m sure other presidents did also but i can’t remember for sure. So i guess fake news is not just for democrats.

  2. Mr. Fake News, Obama visited the western wall but not while he was president. President Trump is the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like there will be any positive results of this visit for Israel anyway.

    • There won’t be positive results because he’s pulling back on his campaign pledge to move the American Embassy to Yerushalayim. And he is also OK with a 2 state solution which can’t make sense for Israel. He also asked Netanyahu to curb or hold back from more settlements. Looks to me like more pressure on Israel. Business as usual between USA and Israel. May or may not be terrible for Israel but certainly nothing great and new as many were expecting.

  3. TO MR. FAKE NEWS. And RUNNING. Please get your facts straight. NO– Obama did NOT GO WHILE HE WAS PRESIDENT. President TRUMP IS the FIRST sitting President to visit the Kosel. Before you embarrass yourselves, get the facts straight.

  4. It’s a tough spot as a US pres, if he favors Israel too much gets flak from everyone- including many of his own constituents. Eisav sonei es Yaakov is very true today.

  5. Imagine all the bittul tefilla which occurred when they cleared kotel plaza. Terrible, as we need tefilla a whole lot more than a good president.

  6. CNN is already reporting that when President Trump reached into the Kosel to place his paper, that he was really passing secrets to the Russians on the other side of the wal

  7. He should be praying. He just gave the Saudi’s the largest weapons deal in the history of the US. $110 billion immediately with an end cost of over $300 billion. That nice Jewish son inlaw, Jared negotiated the deal. In the past when Saudi’s got military aid they would have to frequently certify that the weapons and bombs weren’t going to Israel’s enemies. Jared felt they could be trusted.
