President Donald Trump has paid his respects at the Western Wall, the holiest place where Jews can pray.

Wearing a black skullcap, Trump walked slowly toward the wall and pressed his right hand flat against the stone for about 30 seconds. He then tucked a prayer note into a deep crevice. His wife and daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, visited the women's section of the wall.

The site in Jerusalem's Old City in east Jerusalem was at the center of a recent spat between the two allies following the U.S refusal to say it is part of Israel.

Before visiting the Wall, Trump visited the Church of the Holy Supulchre. It's believed to be where Jesus was crucified, and where his tomb is located.

Trump is on his first visit to Israel as president.
