Trump's discussion about the embassy move

Various news websites yesterday were reporting, based on a source in the Trump administration, that today they would start talking about and looking into moving the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Without having any idea how those discussions will conclude, and with the default expectation being that most people have expected that Trump will renege on his campaign promise as has every president until now and not move the embassy, I would point out that just having this "discussion" about the possibility is already more than any previous president has done about this. The others all promised during their campaigns and then just went along with the State Department that told them to drop the idea, too dangerous, taking sides, etc. Trump holding a discussion with his team about it and figuring out if it is something they should do or should not do, is already progress.

  1. Seems like Trump, cabinet & senate is on board to move the embassy - question is What does the Knesset, MKs & people think of the move?
