Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Reaction pouring in after word President Trump is expected to announce today, the US will officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump is also expected to say he will instruct the State Department to begin the process of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

Pope Francis is calling for the status quo of Jerusalem to be preserved and respected, and for ``wisdom and prudence'' to prevail to avoid further conflict.

A senior Palestinian official says the move means that ``the peace process is finished'' because Washington ``has already pre-empted the outcome.''

China and many other countries are expressing their concerns saying Trump's decision may aggravate regional tensions in the mid East.
