Trump will not announce Israel embassy move on trip

Trump will not announce Israel embassy move on trip

One possible factor: the absence of a firm decision as to whether he will move the USA embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as promised.

"People are exposed to it and it raises suspicion", he continues.

Stops on the upcoming trip include Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Vatican; places sacred to three of the worlds major religions.

Hall of Famer Cortez Kennedy found dead
Cortez Kennedy , the 305-pound tackling machine who anchored the Seahawks' defensive line throughout the 1990s, has passed away. According to The New York Times , Kennedy spent time as an adviser for the New Orleans Saints after hanging up his cleats.

In recent days, United States officials have tamped down expectations of an embassy move, reportedly emphasizing to their Israeli counterparts that Trump remains committed to relocating the embassy by the end of his first term, even if he decides next month to extend the presidential order freezing the implementation of the move. Israel reportedly gave the intelligence information to the United States that President Trump shared with Russian Federation officials at the White House last week. He is scheduled to arrive in Israel on Monday, to meet with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.

But in recent weeks the mood has since soured.

That was an odd statement because if Tillerson means the elected Israeli government, its view has been consistent and unequivocal in support of putting the U.S. Embassy in the actual Israeli capital.

The maps, shown in a video promoting President Donald Trump's visit to Israel and other Middle Eastern countries, removed the West Bank and Golan Heights area as belonging to Israel.

Those who deemed the administration to be neutral doubled to 21 percent, compared to 10 percent in January.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley raised eyebrows this week when she declared that the Western Wall in Jerusalem is part of Israel and renewed the call made by Donald Trump during his presidential campaign past year that the United States should move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Respondents that did not know what his position was rose from 8 to 19 percent. But the administration's preparations for the trip have tempered Israeli excitement around his visit.

DHS chief says reported Russian back-channel not a 'big deal'
As a result of the sense of crisis enveloping the Oval Office, Trump is said to be weighing changes at the uppermost ranks of the White House.

A senior official who attended the cabinet meeting told Israeli newspaper Haaretz that Netanyahu was "furious and blew up at the meeting", after which the Prime Minister's Bureau instructed all ministers that they must appear at the event at Ben Gurion International Airport. Trump will be the first sitting US president to visit the site, although Barack Obama and George W. Bush did so either as candidates or private citizens. More than a third of Palestinians believe his administration will allow continued Israeli settlement building, escalating Israeli-Palestinian tensions.
