You won’t find “Jerusalem, Israel,” on any U.S. government maps. Ditto for documents. And despite President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, you still won’t.
A day after Trump’s dramatic decision, much U.S. policy on the disputed holy city appeared largely unchanged. As a result, you can forget about seeing Jerusalem referred to as Israeli in any U.S. passport anytime soon.
Trump’s announcement may have infuriated the world, sparked violent Palestinian demonstrations and raised fears of unruly protests elsewhere. But he maintained that he didn’t take a position on the boundaries of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem or resolution of its contested borders.
