In making his announcement on Wednesday, Trump also said that he would direct the State Department to begin preparations for moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, though he signed a national security waiver keeping the facility in Tel Aviv for the time being.
He added that "the decision of the trump will not change the reality of al-Quds (the Arabic name for Jerusalem, which is claimed by Palestinians) - the Arab, Muslim and Christian city is the eternal capital of Palestine".
