U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Tuesday night called for the embassy to be moved from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Jerusalem despite the Trump administration's apparent stalling on the issue.
"Obviously I believe that the capital should be Jerusalem and the embassy should be moved to Jerusalem because if you look at all their government is in Jerusalem. So much of what goes on is in Jerusalem and I think we have to see that for what it is," Haley said in an interview on The Brody File.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson last week said the Trump administration needs more time to consider moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem following reports that the White House was walking back President Trump's campaign promise to do so.
Trump met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas earlier this month.
Tillerson admitted Trump is considering input from both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Abbas because his priority is cheerleading a peace deal.
"The president has recently expressed his view that he wants to put a lot of effort into seeing if we cannot advance a peace initiative between Israel and Palestine," Tillerson said. "And so, I think in large measure the president is being very careful to understand how such a decision would impact a peace process."
Vice President Mike Pence told attendees at an Israeli Independence Day event in early May that Trump was still looking at moving the embassy.
