President Trump Signed the Waiver
Jerusalem post reports that, President Donald Trump has “postponed” moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but remains committed to relocating the facility while in office consistent with pledges he made during his campaign for the White House, a senior administration official said on Thursday.
The president was faced with a June 1 deadline built into the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which compels the State Department to verify the opening of a Jerusalem embassy or else cite “national security interests” for the delay.
The president signed the waiver on Wednesday, yesterday, citing national security concerns. The 1995 law requires updates every six months, and thus faces the president with another deadline in December.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer that, “No one should consider this step to be in any way a retreat from the president’s strong support for Israel and for the United States-Israel alliance…President Trump made this decision to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend America’s national security interests…As he has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if that move happens, but only when”.
Prophecy tells us the United States will stand with and protect Israel in the end times. Moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem would be one more way of showing our allegiance to Israel as our greatest ally in the Middle East.
Only time will tell if and when this will occur…
