The agreement came in a joint call between Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, Mr Trump and Mr Netanyahu.
The first commercial flight between the UAE and Israel took place last month as the two countries looked to open up their tourism sectors.
On Friday, the White House announced that Israel and Bahrain had also agreed to establish full diplomatic relations.
High-level ministers from Bahrain will also formalise the deal at the Tuesday ceremony in the White House.
