A Hebrew channel revealed, on Monday evening, the US President Donald Trump’s retreating about the decision to move the US Embassy from "Tel Aviv" to Jerusalem temporarily.

The Tenth Channel quoting an unnamed source saying that Trump promised  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss the transfer of the embassy in a “timely manner", referring to his desire to push forward the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians.

Trump spoke by phone to Netanyahu on Sunday, saying that the call was "good" and that came in a speech after the White House revealed that it is in the "early stages" of talks to implement the president’s promise to transfer the American embassy.

Trump had promised, during his election campaign, to move the embassy to Jerusalem in breaking the policy pursued by the United States, which prompted former US President Barack Obama to warn of the danger of such a move.
