The official said several dates toward the end of May are being examined. A preliminary delegation from the White House, State Department and Secret Service will arrive in Israel on Thursday to discuss preparations for a possible presidential visit in May.

Trump will make his first trip abroad as president at the end of May when he will take part in a summit of leaders of NATO nations in Brussels.
