President Donald Trump told an Israeli newspaper that he felt a peace deal between the Palestinians and Israel was possible and that he hadn't ruled out a trip to the Western Wall with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hayom reports.

"While a final decision has not been made, we have great respect and friendship for Netanyahu. Going with the rabbi is more traditional, but that could change," the president said in the interview published Sunday.

Trump's visit to the Western Wall, Judaism’s most sacred prayer site, will be the first by a sitting president. It has also been a source of controversy as a U.S. official stated last week that the Western Wall is part of the West Bank, comments that caused friction among Netanyahu's administration as Israel considers the wall to be on its territory. 

Trump in his interview with Israel Hayom also maintained he thought a peace deal could be brokered. 

"I love the people of Israel, I am working very hard to finally have peace for the people of Israel and the Palestinians and hopefully that can come about much sooner than anybody has ever projected," he said. "It is a tremendous possibility. It is good for all. This is a deal that is good for all. And I would consider it one of my crowning achievements if I can do it. We have the right people on it, too."
