President Donald J. Trump spoke with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the King of Jordan Abdullah II on Tuesday and informed them that he intends to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Both the PA and the Kingdom of Jordan released statements stating that this is what Trump told them.
No indication was given for a timeline as to when this will happen.
The Palestinian Authority had already called for three days of rage starting on Wednesday, before they received the phone call.
There is some expectations that on Wednesday, Trump may also officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
On Monday night, President Trump did not sign the waiver for the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which he is required to sign every 6 months if he wants to delay the move.
