Trump doesn't plan to use Israel trip to announce embassy move -official

WASHINGTON, May 17 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump will not use his upcoming trip to Israel to announce plans to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, although he still ultimately wants to take that step, a senior administration official said on Wednesday.

The official, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the Trump administration does not want to complicate attempts to nurture a resumption of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by announcing the embassy move. (Reporting by Steve Holland and Jeff Mason; Editing by Leslie Adler)
