US President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that he might travel to Israel for the opening of a new US embassy there, located in Jerusalem.

"There is an apparent pattern of embassies moving to Jerusalem, and we have to start getting ready now", Gallant wrote, the Post said. That same day, Trump announced that he planned to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Trump said he had finally authorized $300,000 to $400,000 to be spent on the construction of the new embassy.

President Donald Trump announced Friday that he had rejected a plan to spend $1 billion to open a new embassy in Jerusalem. In addition, Trump's newly appointed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will visit Israel, as well as Jordan and Saudi Arabia, on his first foreign trip on the job this weekend.

While the United States will eventually move into a purpose-built embassy, its diplomats will initially operate out of the consulate in Jerusalem which is now being upgraded.

While Israel regards Jerusalem as its "undisputed and undivided" capital, Palestinians say its status should only form part of a final peace agreement and the embassy move will wreck a two-state solution to the decades-old Middle East conflict. David Friedman, his former lawyer now serving as United States ambassador to Israel, told him on the phone he could get it done for a fraction of the price.

"They were going to spend a billion dollars and we're going to spend much less than half a million dollars", he added. "I had my name half-signed and I noticed the figure and I never got to the word 'Trump"'.

"He said I can build it for $150,000 - the embassy".

Meanwhile, Merkel, who has endured a frayed relationship with Trump, did not nod or show any signs of approval as the president bragged, even as he at one point turned directly in her direction seeking approval for his frugalness and negotiating sills. We have a building.
