Senior US official: ‘We’ll move embassy, just give us time’ — report

A senior unnamed US official says that despite ongoing reports that Donald Trump plans to ignore a campaign pledge to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, the move will happen, eventually.

“We’ll move embassy, just give us time,” the official says, according to Channel 2 news.

According to Haaretz, US officials told Israeli counterparts that even if Trump signs a waiver next month to prevent the embassy moving, he will carry out the promise to bring the embassy to Jerusalem by the end of his first term in office.
