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.”
