On December 5, 2017, President Donald Trump announced that he would do what no other President has done over the past two decades. Henceforth, he would order that the US Embassy in Tel Aviv be relocated to Jerusalem, in compliance with the provisions of the Jerusalem Embassy Act. Then he immediately proceeded to do what each of his predecessors has done every six months over the past two decades – he signed the waiver delaying his compliance with the Jerusalem Embassy Act.
Legally speaking, absolutely nothing has changed.
