Trump Says He Refused to Approve $1 Billion Jerusalem Embassy

April FrancisApr 28, 2018

Instructions have been given to relevant authorities to build a new embassy quarter, a move that came as result of US President Donald Trump's announcement to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital past year.

"I may go. I'm very proud of it", Trump told reporters at a joint press conference with German leader Angela Merkel.

While previous USA presidents had run for election promising to move the embassy to Jerusalem, none ever pursued the relocation once in office.

At a gala celebration at the Prague Castle, the country's President Milos Zeman said that the opening of an honorary consulate and the appointment of businessman Propper as the honorary consular were the first two steps in a three step process that would eventually lead to the relocation of the country's embassy.

Farra said that Malki made it clear in the meeting that none of the European Union member states should be allowed to take steps or even announce an intention to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

2 officers, 1 civilian shot in Texas
The Dallas Police Department confirmed two officers and a civilian loss prevention officer, who worked at the store, were shot. The two police officers were called to the store to help an off-duty officer with removing the man from the store.

The quarter was supposed to be called "Embassy Town", but Gallant said that he's thinking of naming it after US President Donald Trump.

He urged countries that do not recognize the state of Palestine to do so with East Jerusalem as its capital, and to support Palestine's accession to worldwide organizations. It's going to be attractive, and it'll be somewhat temporary, but it could be for many years, because by the time they build it the other way, it's going to be many, many years.

The Czech Republic and Romania have recently hinted that they will follow United States suit and move their embassies to Jerusalem. "It's USD1 billion". And I had my name half-signed, then I noticed the figure, and I just didn't - I never got to the word 'Trump". I said, "What?" He said, "I can build it for $150,000, the embassy".

"We have a great site". I had "Donald" signed, but I never got to the word "Trump". And it will be somewhat temporary but it could be for many years. He also gave an insight into the internal White House deliberations on the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

"That's the way government works. They were going to spend a billion dollars and we're going to spend much less than half a million dollars".
