US President Donald Trump’s visit to the Western Wall on Monday seems to have made a real impact on him, so much so that he changed the banner on his Twitter page – his favorite social media outlet – to a photo of him visiting the wall.

The president used the Western Wall photo as the banner – the photo that spans the top of his page – on his personal Twitter account, @ realdonaldtrump. But he also went with a new photo for the top of the official @POTUS White House account. Over there, Trump (or his social media team) changed the banner photo to an image of Trump and his wife, Melania, alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Sara Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and Nechama Rivlin at Ben-Gurion Airport on Monday.

On both Twitter accounts, the president tweeted videos of his trip to Israel and retweeted Netanyahu’s posts welcoming him to the country and thanking him for his visit.

So how long will Israel and its leaders remain as the president’s Twitter banner? Nobody really knows – after all, he’s set to meet the pope on Wednesday.
