Trump made the comment to reporters at the White House. Earlier on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Fox News in an interview that he would love to have the U.S. president visit the city. Trump also suggested last month attending the opening of the embassy, after his decision for the United States to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital aggravated Arab allies but strengthened his bond with Netanyahu.
