He's one of the friends of Israel.

Those comments conflicted with those of Trump, Pence and some Republican lawmakers who said the shutdown is harming the U.S.'s ability to protect its citizens.

The administration has cited the impact the shutdown could have on the military when laying blame on Democrats. Among his mandates: To meet with EU counterparts and talk them into moving ahead and renegotiating the Iran nuclear deal in alignment with President Trump's vision for the 2015 deal.

Palestinians, on the other hand, see East Jerusalem as their capital.

Trump's shift on Jerusalem overturned decades of US policy that its status should be decided in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations. This is the second leg of his Middle East tour that will include Israel.

In his comments to troops, the vice president said the administration will demand that "they" - he didn't mention Democrats by name - reopen the government.

Pence said that both he and Trump are demanding that Democrats prioritize military funding and "reopen the government".

Visiting Jordan on Sunday before flying to Israel, Pence told its monarch, King Abdullah, that Washington was committed to preserving the status quo of holy sites in Jerusalem, a city sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians.

The senator from Kentucky said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union": "It's gamesmanship and it's partisanship".

Pence will not meet Palestinian leaders. Pence departed Friday evening for his visit to the Middle East. And only after Pence raised the issue directly with Sisi did the Egyptians later allow the press to take pictures and listen to brief remarks. "I think the American people see through it". In addition to more than 31 million members globally the museum has hosted over 100 diplomats such as US Amb.

"Some are motivated by biblical prophecy, but there's a broad array of views on biblical prophecy".

Senate Republicans now hold a 51-49 edge. I'm not buying it, ' he said. In a speech last week, Abbas made it clear once again that the U.S. will no longer be accepted by the Palestinians as a broker in any peace initiative.

"Trump's designation of Jerusalem as Israel's capital poses a dilemma for Egypt" Egypt, which receives extensive military and economic aid from Washington, but does not want to appear dismissive of Palestinian concerns. He says, "This is pure politics". He has certainly helped in the accomplishments in these two topics, to date. "Today, we have a major challenge to overcome, especially with some of the rising frustrations".

He says, "They need to open the government tonight or tomorrow and then we can start talking". And I hope I impressed upon King Abdullah our earnest desire to restart the peace process'.

The Senate planned a vote by early Monday on a spending extension.
