Pence said he had received no blowback from world leaders over Trump's immigration comments.
The website Salon, which described Pence's visit to the region as "hyper-partisan" said: "This theological belief is behind many far-right American Christians" political position on Jerusalem.

The same is true for Israeli Jews if the agreement would ensure that Jews could visit the Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem's Old City, Judaism's holiest site, which is known as al-Haram al-Sharif in Islam, where it is the third-holiest site. Some conservative evangelicals believe the "rapture" will happen before the retaking of Jerusalem, but share a focus on the event as a central part of their apocalyptic narrative.
