What better if we could make peace between Israel and the Palestinians?
Trump's decision in December to transfer the United States embassy to the disputed city has drawn widespread condemnation, with critics saying it damages hopes for a negotiated Middle East peace.
The decision caused uproar in the Arab world and led Palestinian leaders to reject a USA role in mediating a resolution to the decades old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Mr. Barkat also praised Mr. Trump for his "boldness and leadership" on the issue and noted that Israelis deeply appreciate the historical significance of the White House's decision to recognize Jerusalem as a capital, and move the embassy there, 70 years after President Harry Truman recognized Israel as a sovereign state.
Haley has been a staunch advocate of the Trump administration's decision in December to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv, explaining that President Donald Trump "recognized a reality that American presidents had denied for too long".
The PLO recognised Israel officially in 1993, but Israel has yet to offer formal recognition of Palestine.

"I want a solution where they have all the power they need to govern themselves but none of the powers to threaten", Netanyahu said Wednesday, addressing The Economic Club of Washington. She recalled, "Some of you might have seen that the top Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat, recently had some advice for me".
Haley explained how she was initially skeptical about taking the position as ambassador to the United Nations since her political experience has mainly been as a governor, but she was sold on the job when she told President Trump that she would be speaking her mind at all times. If Israel evacuated the West Bank, he said, "either you'll have Hamas coming in - that's Iran - or ISIS coming in".
He said Tehran was seeking to build permanent military bases in Syria - where Iranian-backed forces support president Bashar al-Assad in a civil war - and develop factories there and in Lebanon for precision-guided missiles capable of striking Israel.
"We will continue to demand that Israel not be treated like some sort of temporary, provisional entity", Haley said.
"It is because we are inspired by the same ideas, because we are animated by the same values that America and Israel have forged an eternal bond that can never ever be broken", Netanyahu concluded, to rapturous applause. "Trump has a cloud over his own administration as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III investigates his aides and others as part of an inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election". "We will not let that happen". As for Trump's long-anticipated peace proposal, Netanyahu said he "did not see a draft" during Monday's meeting. Rosenstein said the Russians were simply promoting discord, adding that there is "No allegation in the indictment that any American knowingly participated in the conspiracy".
