Will he or won’t he? That is the question.

As of this writing, US President Donald Trump has not signed the infamous US embassy waiver. If he does not sign it by the end of today (December 4), the United States will be obligated to move its Israel embassy, currently in Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem.

Many analysts are of the opinion that President Trump may take a middle course of action: he may sign the waiver, thus not obligating the US to move the embassy for the next six months, but will also announce that the United States recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Last night, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) was the guest of honor at the annual Salute to Beit El institutions event in New York, hosted by American Friends of the Bet El Yeshiva Center. There, she counseled (and challenged) President Trump to “JUST DO IT” – MOVE THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM!

Justice Minister to Trump: Just do it!
