In an interview for an Israeli newspaper, President Israel Hayom editor-in-chief Boaz Bismuth, Trump said that both Israel and the Palestinians would have to jeopardize considerably to accomplish peace. Trump stated this in responding to Bismuth’s question on whether Israel would have to give something in return for the declaration.
Trump quickly reversed years of U.S. policy in December when he acknowledged Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, generating outrage from Palestinians and the Arab world and issue among Washington’s Western allies.

Others did not thank him for it, he added, but he described the relocation as an important pledge he made and kept.
Trump also said he comprehends why previous presidents who stated they would acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital wound up not doing it. He cited “massive pressure” through intensive lobbying by those opposed to the move.
Bismuth asked Trump exactly what he implied when he stated last month at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that with the declaration “we took Jerusalem off the table.”
Trump said that he indicated to say that the declaration clarified that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, however when it comes to particular borders he would support the ones decideded upon by both celebrations.
The complete interview is scheduled to be released Sunday.
