Donald Trump will not move US embassy to Jerusalem 'for now'US President Donald Trump has signed a waiver allowing him to delay any decision on moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem – but his administration has said the move will go ahead. A statement issued by the White House on Thursday, however, said that the president still intends to relocate the US’ diplomatic seat in the country, and that the move was a question of “when not if”. The controversial election campaign promise was condemned by most of the international community, as well as Palestinians and liberal Israeli circles, which view Israel’s annexation of the east side of the city as illegal.
