Cruz: Western Wall 'part of Israel' & Jerusalem Israel's capital

On Tuesday, McMaster, in a White House briefing, cast some of Trump's revelations as information that was available from publicly available "open-source reporting" and added that the president did not know the precise source of the intelligence he had shared. "It's clearly in Jerusalem", he told reporters.

The White House distanced itself from the alleged comments, saying in statements to United States media that they did not reflect the views of the adminstration.

Israel's Channel 2 reported that during a planning meeting between US and Israeli officials, the Israelis were told that Trump's visit to the wall was private, Israel did not have jurisdiction in the area and that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not welcome to accompany Trump there.

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley made forcefully clear that the Western Wall in Jerusalem belongs to Israel.

Spicer's remarks came hours after another senior Trump administration official, H.R. McMaster, declined to answer a direct question as to whether the United States government considers the Western Wall to be within Israeli territory.

However, Trump has indicated he is disposed toward recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Still, the White House has not expressly denied that classified information was disclosed in the Oval Office meeting between Trump and Russian diplomats last week.

"Deflecting the question, he said: 'No Israeli leaders will join President Trump to the Western Wall'". "It's not in your territory - it's part of the West Bank".

According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Friedman has been president of a group called American Friends of Beit El Institutions.

Trump is also scheduled to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial and the heritage site at Masada, as well as holding meetings with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Netanyahu.

After arriving in the country on Monday, Friedman immediately went to the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.

Speaking after the ceremony, Friedman did not directly respond to the dispute over the Western Wall but pledged to "support Israel in every way". U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that Trump was still seeking to assess whether relocating the embassy would help or harm chances for Israeli-that it could spark fresh unrest.

The Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state.

He has also advocated moving the embassy to Jerusalem.

When he was first put forward as an ambassador, Friedman looked forward to the relocation of the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which Trump had promised while campaigning for the presidency.

During a press conference at the White House, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster attempted to clear up any confusion regarding President Trump's alleged passing on of "classified information" to Russian officials, an occurrence which the Washington Post received a tip about from who they're calling "current and former USA officials".
