As the two arrived at Ben Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv, Melania wore a Michael Kors jacket and matching skirt.

The AP notes that Melania and Ivanka Trump visited the women's section of the wall; the latter converted to Judaism before she married husband Jared Kushner.

One Israeli Airports Authority spokesman told The Associated Press that he didn't know of any previous direct flights from Saudi Arabia.

In public remarks Monday Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that "it will not be simple", but also expressed cautious optimism that "for the first time in many years and the first time in my lifetime, I see a real hope for change".

"Iran must never be allowed to possess a nuclear weapon", he told reporters in Jerusalem, speaking beside Israeli President Reuven Rivlin. Referring to Iran's alleged involvement in arming and training militias, he said it must cease immediately.

Israel has also expressed concern about the $110bn (£84.6bn) arms deal announced between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia on Saturday, with a senior cabinet minister describing the kingdom as a "hostile country".

Netanyahu gave his support to Trump's call for nations to do more to fight terrorism during his visit to Saudi Arabia at the weekend.

"I assure you of our commitment to the two-state solution and to live together with our neighbors in security and peace", Abbas said.

Trump, who co-authored The Art of the Deal, has repeatedly referred to brokering peace between Israel and Palestine as "the ultimate deal".

Trump flew to Israel from Riyadh earlier in the day, on the second leg of his first overseas trip since entering office in January.

"We stand in absolute solidarity with people of the United Kingdom", Trump said.

Mr Trump will hold separate talks with Mr Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as he looks to revive long-stalled peace negotiations. "I won't call them monsters because they'd like that term". You take seriously what they do when they're the prime minister, when they're the president.

Pointing at Iran - Israel and Saudi Arabia's main foe in the region - the US President accused Tehran of fuelling the fires of sectarian conflict and terror.
