Israel Expects President Trump to Move Embassy to Jerusalem Within Days

Under the current Trump presidency, I promise you that: The United States will stand side by side with Israel because your values are our values, your goals are our goals and your wars are our wars.

During the campaign, then-candidate Trump promised that if elected, he would follow through on the move postponed for more than two decades by successive USA administrations.

In a keynote address marking the 70th anniversary of the U.N. vote paving the way for the rebirth of the Jewish nation-state, Vice President Mike Pence said the Trump administration stands solidly behind Israel.

In 1995, Congress passed a law making it United States policy to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

Israeli officials in Jerusalem reportedly believe that there is a high probability that US President Donald Trump will announce in the coming days an official recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, an announcement that will likely indicate a US embassy transfer is underway.

Next month, Trump is due to sign another waiver postponing a transfer for another six months.

On June 1, Trump shied away from what was a major campaign promise by signing a legal waiver that keeps the embassy in Tel Aviv.

But the law contains a clause that has allowed each president since to issue and renew a six-month waiver on carrying out the move.

During Tuesday's address, Pence emphasized the U.S.'s strong relations with Israel.

"Under President Trump, the US will not allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons", he said. Pence also spoke of the support that the US has shown Israel and stated that the negative treatment that Israel has seen at the hands of the United Nations ended with the apointment of USA ambassador Nikki Haley to the U.N.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and World Jewish Congress President Ron Lauder also spoke at the event, which was organized by the Israeli mission to the UN.

"It's a question of when, not if", a USA official said at the time about a move to Jerusalem, which Israel considers its eternal capital.

"Seventy years ago in this very room, in these very seats where you are sitting today, the dream of the Jewish people of 2,000 years came true".

"He asked that I be here today to express our appreciation for all who support the Jewish people. From this day onward, for the next 70 years and beyond, Israel will continue to be a beacon of democracy, a powerhouse of innovation and a light unto the nations".
