President Donald Trump says he may travel to Israel for the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem expected in May.
The president told reporters his staff is looking at the possibility during a bilateral meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office Monday.
The two men praised the close relationship between their two countries.
Prime Minister Netanyahu says it’s “never been stronger.”
It’s his first visit to Washington since President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and started making plans to move the U.S. Embassy there.
