The delay was decided amid warnings from allies and calls with world leaders. The White House said Tuesday that Trump would miss a deadline for his decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Allied countries gave 48-hour warnings regarding the transfer plan.

So far, Trump has not taken the final decision on this shocking issue.

One White House spokesman, Hogan Gidley, told reporters on the Air Force One presidential plane that the announcement of the decision would be 'within the next few days'. Trump has just returned from a visit to Utah, USA.

Noted that in 1995, the US Congress passed a law regulating US policy to move its Embassy to Jerusalem. This law also means symbolic support for Israel, recognizing Jerusalem as its capital. The international world only recognizes Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel.

The deadline for Trump to sign a statement or a waiver whose content is ignoring the law's application, is imminent. The statement must be updated every six months. The last time Trump signed in June.

"The president has been clear on this issue from the start: It's not a question of whether (the US Embassy will be moved), it's a matter of when," Gidley said in a statement.

A number of senior US officials earlier said Trump would release a temporary order to delay the removal of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, although he insisted on having made the move in the future according to his campaign promise.
