The report cites a “White House spokesman” who told the news outlet that Mr. Trump always planned to address the matter, but he has been waiting for the right time to make the announcement. The speech is currently slated for Wednesday.

“The President has always said it is a matter of when, not if. The President is still considering options and we have nothing to announce,” the spokesman told Axios.

The issue is a contentious one in the Middle East. Israel already sees Jerusalem as the capital, but no foreign government’s have embassies there. The U.S. would set itself apart from the rest of the world by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital.
