President Trump still plans to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but is not yet prepared to unveil plans to do so, a White House spokesman said Thursday amid reports that a recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is imminent.

"The president has always said it is a matter of when, not if," the spokesman told the Washington Examiner when asked about moving the embassy. "The president is still considering options and we have nothing to announce."

Trump is reportedly weighing a plan that would waive a legislative requirement that he move the embassy to Jerusalem while taking steps to recognize Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel. The president promised on the campaign trail to move the embassy from Tel Aviv.

However, earlier this year, Trump signed a waiver that delayed the embassy move for six months.

White House officials described the decision at the time as an effort to give peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians the chance to get off the ground.
