White House confirms Trump discussed Jerusalem with Mideast leaders

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump spoke separately on Tuesday with five Middle East leaders about “potential decisions regarding Jerusalem” amid reports he plans to move the U.S. Embassy to the city, the White House said in a statement.
