Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the Trump administration will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem within the year. Netanyahu told reporters traveling with him on a state visit to India that he bases the prediction on what he called a solid assessment. Netanyahu's comments on Wednesday are at odds with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Tillerson said last month the U.S. embassy won't move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for at least 3 years or more.
President Donald Trump said in early December his administration now recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and he'll order the embassy to move there.
