 h07 trump to decide israel capital

President Trump is expected to decide today whether the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city—and whether the the U.S. will move its embassy there from Tel Aviv. Trump’s planned announcement comes after senior adviser Jared Kushner told the Saban Forum in Washington, D.C., that Trump had not yet made a decision. Israel has occupied East Jerusalem since 1967, and Palestinian leaders have condemned any plans by the U.S. to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
