Officials laying groundwork for Trump visit to Israel in late May: sources

DEBKAfile sources said Wednesday that there are discussions underway between US and Israeli officials to lay the groundwork for a visit to Israel by President Donald Trump in the second half of May after his visit to Brussels for a NATO conference.
It is already clear that the president's trip to the region will include a meeting with Saudi King Salman and possibly with Egyptian President Abdul Fatteh El-Sisi, although such a visit to Cairo is highly sensitive in terms of security. In other words, it will be a quick visit to the Middle East. It is still not clear how long Trump will visit Israel, and it may be for no longer than a day. The question now is whether Trump will stay overnight or depart in the evening for one of the Arab countries.
