Trump postponed any change in June in order to "maximise the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians", the White House said at the time.

President Donald Trump is actively considering "when and how" to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday.
"President Donald Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem", Pence told the gathering of United Nations ambassadors, diplomats and Jewish leaders.
He said America "stands with Israel because her cause is our cause, her values are our values, and her fight is our fight". "He doesn't think the timing is right, right now". Since Congress passed legislation in 1995 authorizing the relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem, every sitting president has signed successive six-month waivers delaying the move, citing national security concerns. The Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, while Israel has declared the entire city as its capital. Since that year, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Trump all signed waivers.

He said that with regard to Israel, the United Nations had become "a forum for invective in the form of anti-Semitism and hatred".
Shaheen also argued the that U.S. government is trying to draw out a path for the region at the expense of Palestinians, while attempting to force new conditions on their leadership before announcing its own plan for the peace process.

Pence, who is scheduled to visit Israel in December, praised Trump's handling of the US-Israel relationship.
"As the president has made clear, our administration is also committed to finally bringing peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict", Pence said.
"As President Trump said, 'If the world knows nothing else, let them know this-that America stands with Israel, '" Pence said.
