President Donald Trump's visit to the Western Wall on Monday delivered a "powerful message," author and lawyer Alan Dershowitz said.
During an appearance on Fox Business' "Risk & Reward" with Deirdre Bolton, Dershowitz was asked about the president's visit to the holy site in the Old City of Jerusalem.
"He sent a powerful message by going to the Western Wall," Dershowitz said. "But I think more can be done. I hope before his term ends he understands we will see the embassy of the United States and all the embassies in the world move to Israel's undivided capital Jerusalem. Why should Israel's capital not be recognized? And so I think we'll be making progress."
Dershowitz also called on Trump to employ his negotiating and dealmaking skills to help bring peace in the Middle East.
"I also think that he has the potential to make a deal," Dershowitz said. "It won't be a complete deal first, but I think there will be steps along the way to bringing the Israelis and the Palestinians together.
". . . If President Trump is a real dealmaker, he'll be able to make the Palestinians make the kinds of concessions that they will have to make in order to earn themselves a state."
