However Israeli officials offered Trump an alternative to land at the bottom of the site and go up on cable cars as former President George Bush did upon his visit, but the offer was turned down.

McMaster's comments came a day after American and Israeli officials, who were planning Trump's visit, got into a spat regarding the location of the holy site, with a U.S. official-later identified as David Berns, political counselor at the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem-allegedly telling the Israelis the Western Wall "is not in your territory".

Despite the Israeli protests, Trump's national security adviser would not back down.

The letter, organized by the American Christian Leaders for Israel (ACLI), overseen by the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem's USA branch, cited the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, which acknowledges Jerusalem as "the seat of Israel's President, Parliament, and Supreme Court, and the site of numerous government ministries and social and cultural institutions". A senior partner, leader of the Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, has been vocal against a Palestinian state.

This new development happened days ahead of a visit by President Donald Trump on an ultra-sensitive status of Jerusalem. "This is his first goal".

After meeting Netanyahu in the White House, Trump moderated his opinion.

Netanyahu will be wary to upset his ally during his visit.
