The moving of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem remains a priority for US President Donald Trump but the development is not expected to break ground soon, said a senior administration official.

Netanyahu’s last visit to Washington in March 2015, will widely boycotted by over 50 democrats after his polarizing speech to Congress. Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice said at the time that his decision to speak was “destructive to the fabric of the relationship” between Israel and the US.
