Joe Scarborough: Source Says Trump Won’t Move Embassy to Jerusalem Anytime Soon

MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough reported on his show Monday that the Donald Trump administration would not be moving the U.S. embassy to Israel to Jerusalem immediately as promised, but would wait until completely negotiations with various Arab countries.

“We have been hear an awful lot about Jerusalem,” he said. “The fact they are not going to move on Jerusalem for quite some time.”

“They want a peace deal in the Middle East, that is their top priority. And they have been told in no uncertain terms that the recognition of Jerusalem sets that back for the next four years. So that’s not happening for a while,” he continued.

Scarborough did not come out and say who and what his source was, but has previously reported on the goings-on of the Trump campaign and transition team citing top officials. Per Scarborough, he also speaks with Trump several times a week.
