The U.S. embassy in Israel will move to Jerusalem by the end of 2019, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Monday.
“In the weeks ahead, our administration will advance its plan to open the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem – and that United States Embassy will open before the end of next year,” Pence said in a speech to the Israeli parliament in Jerusalem.
“Jerusalem is Israel’s capital – and, as such, President Trump has directed the State Department to begin initial preparations to move our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” said Pence, explaining the decision. He did not give an exact date.

Giuliani brags to Trump about digging up dirt in Ukraine as Rudy’s friends beg him to lay low
Rudy Giuliani took a call from President Donald Trump moments after arriving in New York City from his latest trip to Ukraine, and boasted that he'd dug up more campaign dirt against Joe Biden.
The president called his personal attorney as the plane was still taxiing on the runway Saturday, and Trump asked Giuliani what he'd gotten during his trip to Kyiv and elsewhere in Europe, reported the Wall Street Journal.
“More than you can imagine,” Giuliani replied.
Peculiar New Hampshire Trump supporters are taking a hard look at voting for Tulsi Gabbard
According to a report from CNN, long-shot Democratic presidential nominee Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is getting an unexpected bump in the polls in early primary state New Hampshire by drawing out Gabbard-curious supporters of Donald Trump.
As CNN's Dan Merica reports, "Voters asking questions at Democratic presidential campaign events don't often profess their love for Donald Trump or privately weigh whether to support a Democrat or the President in 2020. But most Democratic events are not like Tulsi Gabbard's town halls."
Calls grow to revoke White House press pass for Anti-Semitic pro-Trump pastor — but why did he have one to begin with?
Two Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida and Rep. Elaine Luria of Virginia, are calling for the Trump White House to revoke the press credentials of Florida-based pastor and TruNews founder Rick Wiles following his latest anti-Semitic rant. In a video posted on TruNews’ YouTube channel on November 22, the far-right evangelist described Democratic efforts to impeach President Donald Trump as a “Jew coup” and claimed that Jews will “kill millions of Christians” if they succeed in removing Trump from office. The remarks were so offensive that YouTube shut down the TruNews channel as a terms of service violation — and Deutch and Luria, in a letter to Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, asserted that the White House should “firmly reject anti-Semitic ideas, language” by banning Wiles from all future White House media events.
