Donald Trump has disclosed a good relationship with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu
Mr Trump today declared to ignore critics who claimed “we can’t do this” and will instead go ahead with the argumentative embassy move this spring.
Palestinians have already convinced the move is “unacceptable” due to the fact Israel and Palestine both claim the municipality as their capital.
And to add fuel to the fire, the planned opening date tallies with Israel’s proclamation of independence in 1948.
Earlier today Mr Trump affirmed he would not listen to critics of the move.
He said at CPAC: “I put the word out that I may do it. I was hit by profuse countries and more pressure and more people calling, begging me ‘Don’t do it. Don’t do it. Don’t do it’.
“I utter ‘we have to do it’. It’s the right thing to do. It’s the right thing to do, we have to do it. And I did it.”
US Vice President Mike Pence put the Israeli Parliament last month that a US embassy to Israel order open in Jerusalem before the end of next year.
This came after Mr Trump circulated in December the US now recognises Jerusalem as the country’s capital.
He used a speech at the Unblemished House to say the move was a “recognition of reality and the right thing to do”.

He then well-organized the State Department to start looking for a site for an embassy in the city.
Mr Trump’s remarks today were met with fury by Palestine.
Nabil Abu Rdainah, a spokesman for the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, revealed: “This is an unacceptable step. Any unilateral move will not give legitimacy to anyone and bequeath be an obstacle to any effort to create peace in the region.”
And thousands of Palestinians pull someones leg flooded the streets of Gaza and the occupied West Bank in days-long bitch action against Mr Trump’s declaration.

Militants fired rockets into Israel, composition strikes in return from Israeli tanks and aircraft.

Hamas, a fundamentalist group that governs the Gaza Work the runway, called for Muslim countries to “cut off economic and political ties with the US embassy and exile American ambassadors to cripple” the move.
Turkey’s foreign ministry upbraided the move and warned that President Trump’s decision will “reveal the gates of hell”.
The US leader was warned by Western and Arab allies in advance of his announcement that the move could threaten instability in the region.
Coalesced Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres said there was no additional to a two-state solution.
Jerusalem straddles the border between Israel and the West Bank. It is home ground to both Jewish and Islamic holy sites.
Israel holds Jerusalem to be its indivisible paramount, while Palestinians want the city’s eastern sector to be their head in an independent Palestine state.
Most countries regard the status of Jerusalem to be a dilemma to be solved in an eventual Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.
