In a report published in Politico on Monday, GOP mega-donor Sheldon Adelson has privately complained about president Donald Trump’s delay on moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, three people close to the billionaire said.
He is also disappointed that people he recommended for top administration posts haven’t yet been hired by Trump’s White House.

The casino billionaire, who funneled tens of millions of dollars into Trump’s presidential campaign, has not donated to him since the inauguration or to pro-Trump outside groups.
In response to the report Adelson spokesman, Andy Abboud, told Politico that he is “overall not angry or unhappy” with the president and is pleased with his decisiveness on certain issues.
Adelson, he said, is waiting patiently to act on the embassy.
The report mentioned that “in what some Republicans are interpreting as a sign of his frustration, Adelson has yet to give money to any of the pro-Trump outside groups set up to boost the president’s agenda.”
