WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday his decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is long overdue.

“I think it’s long overdue. Many presidents have said they want to do something and they didn’t do it,” he said in a Cabinet meeting ahead of his midday speech on Israel.
