Trump says he 'may go' to Jerusalem embassy opening

Instructions have been given to relevant authorities to build a new embassy quarter, a move that came as result of US President Donald Trump's announcement to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital past year.

Trump was speaking at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"There is an apparent pattern of embassies moving to Jerusalem, and we have to start getting ready now", Gallant wrote, the Post said.

Speaking in the White House, Trump said he had no regrets about the decision as he described nixing a $1 billion, 10-year plan to construct a brand new embassy in favour of a $300,000 to $400,000 makeover of part of an existing United States consulate.

The GE-Safran partnership that built the engine said it was sending about 40 technicians to help with Southwest's inspections. It broke off during that Southwest flight from NY to Dallas sending shrapnel forward and causing an explosion.

Administration officials have previously said it was unlikely that Trump would lead the delegation, and that Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, senior adviser Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, his daughter, would travel in his stead.

While Israel regards Jerusalem as its "undisputed and undivided" capital, Palestinians say its status should only form part of a final peace agreement and the embassy move will wreck a two-state solution to the decades-old Middle East conflict.

Trump also said he had rejected a proposal to build the new embassy for $1 billion, noting it would be built for less than half a million dollars.

"I may go", Trump said, addressing the question of whether he would be there for the opening. "It's USD1 billion". And I had my name half-signed, then I noticed the figure, and I just didn't - I never got to the word 'Trump". "We might have to build dozens of embassies, and we would need new land ready or that goal". But he added that he stopped short mid-signature - after jotting "Donald" but before "Trump" - when he realized the cost was too high. "They were going to spend $1 billion and we're going to spend much less than $500,000". "It's going to be lovely and it could be somewhat temporary", he said. "Transportation Minister Israel Katz announced in December that he would name the train station that will be built in the future near the Western Wall after the USA president", adds the Post.
