In may of 2017, the ever newsmaking president Donald Trump landed in Israel and took a direct helicopter to the holy city, making the Kotel his very first stop. He was accompanied by top aides and representatives, as well as his daughter Ivanka. With a large Kippah proudly on his head, he approached the Kotel and recited two chapters of Psalms (Tehilim).
After the visit he revealed to the press that the visit was profoundly inspiring and it would leave a mark on his soul forever.
If you didn’t know, the President is hugely influential on Twitter, and his account is amongst the most followed in the world. Following his visit, the profile banner associated with his account featured the leader of the free world in a moment of meditative prayer at the Kotel. What a message!
