now moving ever as his popularity ratings plummet throughout the day the president briefed the regional leaders which led to this question at the state department briefing i'm wondering if you can say that the that he's gotten the support of anyone for any decision that he might make so again i'm not going to characterize those conversations minutes later the white house press secretary was similarly callie about the decision i'm not going to get ahead of the president's remarks that he'll make tomorrow to say other than israel which thinks that this move is twenty two years overdue that all of the feedback he's been getting from world leaders is overwhelmingly negative so no again he spoke with five leaders that's hardly indicative of everybody across the globe mr president the fifth leader the president called was the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu israeli politicians have welcomed trucks decision on jerusalem the israeli mayor of the city so that the embassy move could take two minutes by switching the sign on the

a saudi backed plan that gives israel formal control of all of jerusalem it appears that drum's announcement on wednesday will be in keeping with the direction of his administration's emerging middle east policy she average hands the al-jazeera washington. news of the possible move as i get palestinians in the occupied west bank dozens of protesters gathered outside the church of the nativity in bethlehem they set fire to posters with donald trump's image our position the position of the president this is very clear and. this is going to be moved to jerusalem this is again. this is this would be unacceptable for our son. if this happens it would complicate things it would put an obstacle to the peace process maybe it would be the end of the peace process hopefully. the nation would back from this decision. well let's go live to our reporter beth is
12:06 pm
standing by for a second guard that's got to hurry for cities outside damascus gated occupied east jerusalem but nobody wants to preempt what president troubled past to say but what what does what sort of word is coming out from israel the israeli hierarchy and politicians. but we've been hearing from some israeli ministers and senior politicians you heard from she had that piece of the marriage or islam is already been speaking about this talking about his gratitude from the bottom of his heart for this move the israeli transport minister as well saying that declaring jerusalem the capital of israel would be far more consequential far more important than moving the embassy from tel aviv here and that is of course what we are expecting from donald trump later on on wednesday what we haven't heard yet is an official reaction from benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister either to the conversation he had with donald trump on tuesday or his official stance on exactly
12:07 pm
what we're expecting from donald trump and his reaction to this presumed declaration of jerusalem is these really capital as far as the u.s. is concerned he is scheduled to be giving a speech just about now though i just a little bit west of here at a a conference an annual conference given by a local a national newspaper a diplomatic conference that was a prearranged event his speaking there of course is being watched extremely closely we have heard as well from the other side of israeli politics the meretz party one of the left wing parties here the leader of that party saying that really this could cause an explosion and if there is no need to move the embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem well the laws of physics often say however that with every action there is an equal and opposite reaction to one of the consequences on the ground what are you hearing where you are. well people here are obviously angry already
12:08 pm
we've spoken to some local people here not quite east jerusalem we've been talking about this is insanity saying that it totally contradicts the whole idea of a two state solution with a chair or divided capital between east and west jerusalem you saw that relatively small protest in bethlehem and overnight there has been this call for three days of rage and perhaps more importantly what we're hearing from the palestinian authority and officials there and people from the p.l.o. is that this would mark a huge break with the united states that the peace process would essentially be dead that the united states could no longer be an honest broker and even. weeks potentially months out from donald trump's peace plan to which according to the u.s. officials that she had was quoting the u.s. is still committed as far as the palestinians are concerned if this declaration were made that means that the united states is entirely on the israeli side on this most crucial issue even if it tries to phrase even if donald trump tries to phrase
12:09 pm
it in a way that allows for some definition of exactly what that means in a final settlement or final negotiated settlement of the palestinians concerned that would be too late the u.s. has chosen sides definitively or leave it there for now enjoyed you through the day as we get more reaction well there has been strong global condemnation and concern about the intended move at least a dozen leaders and organizations her voice strong opposition to the plan saying it would destabilize the middle east and contravene international law even britain's foreign ministers now join the fray boris johnson is one of the latest to voice his concern here just a few of the many voices that have been speaking out. mr trump jerusalem is a red line for muslims. we will follow the struggle to the very last moment with determination and we could even go right up to cutting our diplomatic relations with israel. a way must be found through negotiations to resolve the status of
12:10 pm
jerusalem as the future capital of the states so that the aspiration of both parties can be fulfilled. the council of ministers rejects this step and expresses its utmost concern regarding this step as well as the moving of the american embassy to jerusalem the iraqi government warns of the consequences of this decision on the stability of the area and the world ignoring the rights of palestinians and the arab and muslim world and other religions. that are indications that the united states in the coming days recognized capital by the way without consulting with the. consequences a step would have germany's position on the should remains unchanged the solution agilis a lame problem can only be found. between the two parties or the corresponding balance with joins me now from historically in recent years. politicians have been
12:11 pm
quite hard line in their reaction and approach to israel what sort of reaction are we hearing at the moment. so those genuine anger here i mean what donald trump is expected to say has managed to unite all the palestinian factions here at the moment here in gaza already that have been running gaza in the process of handing over control to the palestinian or power to a unity deal but it's been pushed by the egyptians well this is only in effect six helped drive that unity further together hamas has pledged its support to mahmoud abbas the palestinian presidency in his approach to want from is expected to say another palestinian factions as well this is the beginning of a protest in central gaza protests a big call for across the palestinian territories three days of rage are being called for one of the speakers has just been saying that what we're seeing here is
12:12 pm
a ball of fire will only grow in the size genuine anger really here so of course is going to bring in that three days of rage muted over the occupied west bank and now as you say repeated where you are in gaza that the level of anger can't be underestimated for our international viewers because people palestinians in the occupied territories have been dealing with this issue of occupation for decades. while of course the status of jerusalem is central to the future of any palestinian state but you will hear despite particularly here in gaza where life is extraordinarily difficult day to day lives extraordinarily difficult stream a high sixty to eighty percent unemployment very difficult for people to get by in their daily lives nevertheless despite all of those other frustrations of day a lot this particular issue. everything and everybody feels extraordinarily strong
