President Donald Trump was interviewed by Boaz Bismuth of Yisroel Hayom this week.  In the interview, President Donald Trump said:

Q: What did you mean when you said that Jerusalem was off the table?

Trump: “By taking Jerusalem off the table I wanted to make it clear that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and as for specific boundaries,

I would support what both sides agreed to.”

Q: Will Israel have to give something in return for the decision on Jerusalem?

Trump: “I think both sides will have to make hard compromises to reach a peace agreement.”

Q: When will the U.S. unveil its peace plan?

Trump: “We are going to see what goes on. Right now, I would say the Palestinians are not looking to make peace, they are not looking to make peace. And I am not necessarily sure that Israel is looking to make peace. So we are just going to have to see what happens.”
