Give Peace a Chance: Trump won’t move Embassy to Jerusalem until peace ‘given a shot’

Donald Trump / Interview with Mike Huckabee

 

President Donald Trump said he will not go ahead with the move of U.S embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem until after an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal his administration is working on is given a chance to succeed. 

In a TV interview with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee on the TBN network, Trump discusses his campaign pledge to move the U.S embassy to Jerusalem and said “I want to give that a shot before I even think about moving the embassy to Jerusalem,” he said.

 

 

“If we can make peace between the Palestinians and Israel,” Trump added, “I think it’ll lead to ultimately peace in the Middle East, which has to happen.”

When he was asked if there was a timeframe for the embassy move, Trump told Huckabee that his administration was working on a plan for peace between the two sides. “We’re going to make a decision in the not too distant future.”

In June Trump signed a temporary order to keep the US embassy in Tel Aviv, despite a campaign promise he made to move it to Jerusalem.
