According to reports, the Trump administration is preparing to announce that Americans born in Jerusalem will be able to include Israel in their American passports.
Politico reported on the upcoming policy changes on Wednesday and is expected to be announced early on Thursday. This is the latest in a growing number of initiatives.

The State Council did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
U.S. citizens born in Jerusalem are only allowed to use U.S. passports to list their city as the country of birth, because they have been vying for the status of the city before Israel and the Palestinians negotiated a final solution. People seek to establish a future independent state Jerusalem in the east.
Trump moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem in 201
The Bush administration stated in its January peace plan that it believes that the final border of Jerusalem should be determined between direct negotiations, but it supports a Palestinian capital in the Arab region around Jerusalem that is currently separated by Israeli security barriers.
Trump’s move to allow U.S. passport holders to list their Jerusalem as a birth city and country was made after a decision made by the Supreme Court in 2015, which stated that the executive branch has the power to grant sovereign state recognition.
The court’s ruling was a victory for the Obama administration, when the Obama administration insisted on a policy that did not recognize any country’s sovereignty over Jerusalem.
The new passport policy is expected to arouse praise from pro-Israel Christian and evangelical groups and Republican Jewish supporters. The move was announced on Wednesday that the Trump administration had lifted restrictions on US investment in research, technology and scientific projects conducted by Israel in settlements in the West Bank, which were deemed illegal under international law.
The Obama administration overturned the State Department’s policy last year and said it no longer considered Israeli settlements “inconsistent with international law”.
Trump also touted his move to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, facing critics who said it would cause widespread violence and uprising in the Middle East.
The President promoted his recent brokerage activities that facilitated links between Israel and Arab and Muslim majority countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan, which marked a change in the situation in the Middle East, which historically avoided the Arab countries’ absence of Israel The public endorsed the settlement negotiated with the Palestinians.
Trump’s latest action is another blow to Palestinian national ambitions. Trump cut off financial support for the Palestinians in 2018, closed their consulate in Washington, and terminated the operation of the US consulate in Jerusalem, which is linked to Ramallah, where the Palestinian Authority is located.
Trump announced a forward-looking plan for a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine, but was widely criticized for creating a separate Palestinian state surrounded by Israeli security barriers.
