America’s friends and foes unleashed fierce criticism on Wednesday ahead of Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital which is expected at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.

A senior administration official said the president would also say he is beginning a long process of moving America’s embassy there from Tel Aviv.

‘The president believes this is a recognition of reality,’ he said.

While Israel welcomed the news, Palestinian officials declared the Mideast peace process ‘finished’ and Turkey announced it would host a meeting of Islamic nations next week to give Muslim countries’ leaders an opportunity to coordinate a response.
