While Netanyahu and Abbas both hailed Trump -Netanyahu stating "working with you, I believe we can advance a durable peace", and Abbas envisaging that Trump "will go down in history" as the president who secured peace, the verdict elsewhere was mixed.
Trump praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas alike, saying both were ready for peace.
But much of the intrigue over Trump's public statements during the trip revolved around what he didn't say.
"Our fundamental problem is with the occupation and settlements, and failure of Israel to recognise the state of Palestine in the same way we recognise it, which undermines the realisation of the two-state solution", Abbas said. The American Embassy in Tel Aviv invited local settlement leaders to attend Trump's speech at the Israel museum, and they could find great comfort in his decision, not to mention the issue of Jewish settlements in the West Bank or to make any comment about the shape of the final-status solution to the conflict.
"I extend my deepest condolences to those so terribly injured in this terrorist attack, and to the many killed and the families, so many families of the victims", Trump said.
"It was the most savage crime against God and his children, and it is our solemn duty to remember, to mourn, to grieve and to honour every single life that was so cruelly and viciously taken", Trump continued. But in reality, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will be even harder to resolve than the investigations and allegations dogging Mr. Trump back home.
The last talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, led by former US Secretary of State John Kerry, broke down in April 2014 after about a year of largely fruitless discussion.

" The Dhola-Sadiya bridge is strategically important for the military as it can withstand a weight of 60-tonne battle tanks". The bridge reduces the distance by 165km, saving six hours of travel time and fuel worth Rs10 lakh per day in the region.
Unlike any of his presidential predecessors, Trump's first trip was to the Middle East, where he met with leaders in Israel and Saudi Arabia, before he headed to Vatican City, Brussels for a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, followed by a G-7 meeting in Sicily.
In a live stream of Trump's remarks with Netanyahu on Monday, the White House listed the meeting's location as "Jerusalem, Israel".
Israel's far right wants to noodge President Trump even further right, when Trump will nearly certainly end up noodging them leftward, given that diplomacy involves compromise.
For once, it was not what President Trump said.
The US has promised to increase military aid to Israel to help maintain the country's military edge in the region as it faces mounting threats from its neighbors, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said as he spoke at Wednesday's Mount Herzl ceremony marking Jerusalem Day.
While Israel regards all of Jerusalem as its "eternal and indivisible" capital, the Palestinians want the east of the city, which Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war, as the capital of their future state.
The senior official briefing reporters after the visit seemed to allude that this will be the way Trump would like to continue as he moves forward.
"Clinton tried, Bush tried, Obama tried".
