Donald Trump has often voiced his support for Israel but today he’s proving it with his actions. He just became the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall.

Trump makes history in Israel: First sitting President to visit Western Wall
Donald Trump marked his first visit as president to Jerusalem by going where none of his predecessors had gone before, at least while in office. Trump made a “private” visit to the Western Wall, the base of the Temple Mount that remains the holiest place for Jews almost two thousand years after the destruction of the Herodian temple. Did anyone ask Trump what country it’s in, though?…
President Donald Trump placed a note in the Western Wall on Monday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit one of Judaism’s holiest sites. …
The Western Wall is not officially recognized as Israeli territory, and the Trump administration has not been clear about whether they believe the holy site is part of Israel.

This was a powerful and symbolic gesture. You had better believe it didn’t go unnoticed by Iran and other nations.
