Trump says he 'may go' to Jerusalem embassy opening

Trump says he 'may go' to Jerusalem embassy opening

Zeman previously voiced support for President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which sparked outrage among Palestinians and across the Muslim world.

The current American plan is to announce the existing consular building in southern Jerusalem as the embassy's location, and move only a small number of offices from the embassy in Tel Aviv to that building as an initial step.

Now, the Jerusalem Post reports Jerusalem's new embassy row may be named "Trump Town".

Earlier in the administration of U.S. President said that trump is unlikely to lead the delegation, but instead on the opening of the Embassy will leave Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, his daughter Ivanka trump and senior adviser Jared Kushner. "It's going to be lovely and it could be somewhat temporary", he said.




While Israel regards Jerusalem as its "undisputed and undivided" capital, Palestinians say its status should only form part of a final peace agreement and the embassy move will wreck a two-state solution to the decades-old Middle East conflict. And the papers - Mike Pence can tell you - the papers were put before me, to sign an application for more than $1 billion to build an embassy. "It's USD1 billion". And I had my name half-signed, then I noticed the figure, and I just didn't - I never got to the word 'Trump".

The president said he then called the United States ambassador in Israel, David Friedman, who said the cost of updating the consulate would only be $150,000. Let's not go from a billion dollars to $150,000.

The White House issued an official statement December 6 declaring that "it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel".

Meanwhile, Merkel, who has endured a frayed relationship with Trump, did not nod or show any signs of approval as the president bragged, even as he at one point turned directly in her direction seeking approval for his frugalness and negotiating sills. "Transportation Minister Israel Katz announced in December that he would name the train station that will be built in the future near the Western Wall after the USA president", adds the Post.
