President Trump urged all parties to "act in a matter conducive to peace", White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters aboard Air Force one.

Sanders made the statement on Thursday, one day after many in the media questioned the president's health after he appeared to slur some words in his speech announcing that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Democrats, if you keep believing that Trump will undo himself before we can get to 2020, you are going to be horribly wrong.

Trump's move on Wednesday to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and set in motion a plan to move the USA embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was celebrated at the party.

"Hanukkah is a time for Jewish families around the world to celebrate the miracles of the past and promises of the future", Trump said.

Those in opposition to Trump's move contest the US's genuine commitment to the peace process, arguing instead that the Jerusalem declaration has "destroyed" the two state solution, further removing the possibility of the USA performing its longstanding role as an impartial mediator.

Trump lit a menorah with his Jewish grandchildren, whom he briefly mentioned in his speech.

He said this year the holiday is "all about Jerusalem", and also said that this specific Hannukah "will go down as especially special". Soloveichik is director of the Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University, and the rabbi at Congregation Shearith Israel in Manhattan. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and Rabbi Shmuley Boteach were also in attendance.

He then introduced Louise Lawrence-Israels, a Holocaust survivor who spent the first three years of her life hiding in an attic in Amsterdam.

The White House denied that politics played a role in the invitations.

Trump first convened a circle of evangelical advisers during his presidential campaign, and he was the overwhelming favorite of white evangelical voters in last year's election.
