The Trump administration is in discussions with Israel to arrange a presidential visit toward the end of May, an Israeli official said.

The visit to Jerusalem may coincide with President Donald Trump's first foreign trip, when he is scheduled to attend a conference in Brussels. Aides to Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are in talks about a side trip to Israel, though no date has been set, according to the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make a public statement.

Netanyahu’s office and the White House declined to comment. Talks to arrange the trip were first reported by Haaretz.

When Netanyahu visited the White House in February Trump said he would like to broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, which he called the "ultimate deal." Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House on May 3.
