The visit would follow President Trump's visit to the United Kingdom in July 2018, which was marred by protests, an inflatable effigy of the President and a controversial interview with The Sun in which he accused Theresa May of "wrecking Brexit".

The Israeli Defense Ministry's Civil Administration High Planning Subcommittee, which authorizes construction in Judea and Samaria, advanced plans for 3,659 homes according to a statement issued by a government official on Sunday, reported Times of Israel.

Netanyahu did not say whether he would seek to annex areas now under Palestinian control under the Oslo Accords.

Regarding his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, he said, "We got you something that you wanted", and added that he had ignored calls from "presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, everybody" who tried to convince him not to go ahead with the announcement.

However, intermittent US mediation between Israelis and Palestinians ran aground after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital early in his term.

Trump says, "The asylum program is a scam".

"Some of the roughest people you've ever seen, people that look like they should be fighting for the UFC", he said about Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts promotion company.

Trump also thanked freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, but followed it quickly by joking, "I forgot that she doesn't like Israel".

In its final days, Israel's parliamentary election appears too close to call, as Netanyahu and his Likud party face a strong challenge from a popular former army chief, Benny Gantz, and his Blue and White party.

"Israel will continue to brazenly violate global law for as long as the worldwide community will continue to reward Israel with impunity, particularly with the Trump administration's support", he said on Twitter. "Two good people", he tells the members of the Republican Jewish Coalition who are meeting in Las Vegas.

In March, Trump broke with decades of global consensus by recognising Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, territory Israel captured from Syria. "This is because Trump's policies and rhetoric are antithetical to Jewish values, and because anti-Semitism has increased to unprecedented levels due to Trump's divisive words, policies, and wilful blindness".
