Trump to Recognize Occupied Al-Quds as «Israel’s» Capital in Coming Days
US President Donald Trump is reportedly planning to announce in the coming days that the United States recognizes Occupied Al-Quds as the capital of the apartheid "Israeli" entity, and is giving serious thought on how to fulfil his election campaign pledge to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Al-Quds.
According to fresh information, Trump is giving greater thought to the idea due to domestic political considerations, primarily stemming from reinvigorated pressure by the Republican party and Evangelical Christians.
To that end, Trump and his staff are considering how to avoid signing for a second time the waiver that would leave the embassy in Tel Aviv.
Trump promised during his election campaign that he would move the US embassy "to the eternal capital of the Jewish people, ‘Jerusalem'."
Close Trump associates have reportedly recommended that he make the announcement of transferring the embassy in the near future.
In the interim, one of the ideas currently being mooted is to recognize Occupied Al-Quds as "Israel's" capital in the 7oth celebrations of occupying Palestine.
"President Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to "Jerusalem," US VP Mike Pence stated.
