On Tuesday, December 5th, President Donald J Trump spoke to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas over the phone, informing him of his “intention” to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to a read out of the phone call published by the official PA news outlet Wafa.

Trump “informed the president (Abbas) on his intention to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” a statement from the Palestinian presidency said.

President Trump is also set to phone Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Hussein to keep them appraised of the latest details. To date, news reports indicate that the security waiver used by every president since Bill Clinton to avoid implementation of a 1995 law requiring the US embassy in Israel be relocated to the capital city of Jerusalem lapsed Monday night amid speculation President Donald Trump could officially recognize the city as Israel’s capital or even announce an embassy move as early as this week.

Under the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, the US embassy in Israel must be moved to Israel’s capital city, Jerusalem.
