Trumpís arrival was initially planned to include speeches and greetings with a long list of dignitaries on the tarmac of Israelís international airport. Later, the White House asked for a brief ceremony to avoid the heat. As a result, most ministers were planning to skip the event.

9. Isn't his first trip abroad going swimmingly?

This is what diplomacy looks like when you have no coherent policy beyond enriching yourself further.
