President Abandons Campaign Promise, Will Not Move Embassy to Jerusalem!
During his campaign last year, now President Trump made one promise repeatedly, “If elected I will move the United States embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.” Sadly, as the President moves into his second 100 days in office, not only has he not moved the embassy where it belongs under international tradition, but is also required under Congressional mandate. The President will have to make his decision within the coming weeks as to where the embassy will be in the future. He will have to make a decision whether or not to waive a 1995 law that mandates the relocation of the embassy but allows the President to exercise six-month delays on national security grounds.
The most recent waiver signed by Barack Obama expires on June 1. While no decision is imminent, according to the White House, “The President has not made a decision yet and is still reviewing that,” spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.
