Trump says Jerusalem move is 'long overdue'

AFP  |  Washington 

Hours before a momentous announcement recognising as Israel's capital, US President Donald Trump today said that the move was "long overdue."

"Many presidents have said they want to do something and they didn't do it, whether it's courage or they changed their mind, I can't tell you," Trump said, portraying himself as daring to fulfil a promise that previous presidents have shied away from.

"I think it's long overdue," he said.
