Exclusive: Trump denies U.S. embassy to be moved to Jerusalem within a yearPresident Donald Trump denied on Wednesday that the planned relocation of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem would take place within a year, after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he expected the controversial move to happen by then.
