Report: Trump to Announce Move of U.S. Embassy in Israel on Monday

President Trump is expected to announce the move of the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday. Israeli news outlets first began reporting the rumors after Trump participated in a phone conference on Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister, but the White House confirmed they were in the "first steps" of relocating the embassy.

The move would be a significant one because Palestinians say they have territorial rights to the city as well.
