Trump Offers Warm Welcome To Netanyahu, Will Consider Traveling To Embassy Inauguration


President Donald Trump said he may soon visit Israel to open a new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem as he offered a warm welcome Monday to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyah.

“I may go for the planned May opening of the embassy,” Trump said. “We’re looking at coming. If I can, I will.”

Netanyahu said of Trump’s decision: “This will be remembered by our people through the ages. Others talked about it. You did it.”

The relocated embassy Trump would inaugurate is actually a refitted office that will serve as the vanguard U.S. diplomatic headquarters until a permanent structure is built years from now.

Trump boasted Monday that he is building it for a mere $250,000, instead of what he said was a $1 billion government “order.”
