(Central Israel) — The Israeli media today is buzzing with speculation that President Trump is coming to Israel in May, and make Jerusalem his first foreign destination since taking office in January.
Big question: If the speculation is accurate, is the President is planning to announce that he is moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as he repeatedly promised during the campaign and in the early weeks of his administration?
The timing of the President’s potential visit is certainly curious, as it could come one day before the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem under Israeli sovereignty during the Six Day War of 1967.
The Palestinian leadership is strongly opposed to the U.S. moving the embassy, even to West Jerusalem. Various Arab states have expressed their concerns and opposition, as well. On May 3rd, President Trump will meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the White House.
