‘US President Donald Trump does not plan to announce relocation of the American embassy to Jerusalem-al-Quds in the upcoming visit, says a senior administration official.
The unnamed official’s comments on Wednesday violated a campaign pledge by the president to recognize Jerusalem al-Quds as “the eternal capital of the Jewish people,” according to multiple reports.
“We don’t think it would be wise to do it at this time,” the official said. “We’ve been very clear what our position is and what we would like to see done, but we’re not looking to provoke anyone when everyone’s playing really nice.”
Since his campaign pledge at the American Israeli Political Action Committee (AIPAC), Trump has been pressured to make the move.’
