At Hanukkah reception, Trump basks in warmth of his Jerusalem recognition

U.S. President Donald Trump announces that the U.S. government will formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House

The release on Trump's health status will be the first the public has seen.

The White House called for "calm and moderation" on Saturday, following a streak of violent protests erupting across the region and the wider Middle East over President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "You do have faith and you do have resilience", Trump said.

"The status of Jerusalem must be determined through negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians leading to a final status agreement", stated the five European member nations of the UNSC - including permanent members France and the United Kingdom - in a statement following an emergency meeting on the Trump declaration of support.

"I think this one will go down as especially special".

Trump later introduced two speakers at the Hanukkah celebration: Rabbi Meir Soloveichik and Holocaust survivor Louise Lawrence-Israels.

Trump in a major policy address had on Wednesday announced to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Soloveichik is director of the Zahava and Moshael Straus Center for Torah and Western Thought at Yeshiva University, and the rabbi at Congregation Shearith Israel in Manhattan. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was present, however, who is affiliated with the Democratic Party.

Conservative Christians have long argued that formally recognizing Jerusalem, home to sites holy to the Muslim, Jewish and Christian religions, was long overdue following a 1995 congressional mandate to move the embassy from Tel Aviv.

However, adding that the the White House maintains it was the right thing to do and that Trump is still committed to a Middle East peace deal.

Trump first convened a circle of evangelical advisers during his presidential campaign, and he was the overwhelming favorite of white evangelical voters in last year's election.
