WASHINGTON D.C., The United States of America – Matt Lee, a journalist for the AP, continues to ask US State Department spokespeople a simple question, “Where is Jerusalem?”
Following the questions, the spokespeople struggle to answer whether it is in Israel or Palestine, but just continue to say that it is now recognized as the capital of Israel.

USA Today offered questions unanswered by Trump’s Jerusalem recognition. These being:
How will U.S. passports identify people born in Jerusalem? How will the city appear on maps? What’s the future of the Consulate General in Jerusalem? And where will the U.S. pay for and build a new embassy in a city where historic, political and security considerations so often intersect?
