Trump talks to Abbas amid discussions on Jerusalem’s US status

Washington/Reuters: U.S. President Donald Trump spoke with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Dec. 5 amid reports the United States is planning to formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a source familiar with the call told Reuters.

A senior administration official said last week that Trump would likely make the announcement on Dec. 6, a decision that would break with decades of U.S. policy and could fuel violence in the Middle East. Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner said the president had not yet made a final decision.
