In regards to Trump, he merely executed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. It isn't a Trump unilateral decision. Politicallly at home, the whole government owns the issue. Even Schumer wanted a more extreme stance of an "undivided" Jerusalem.

If Trump does not start withdrawing funds and aid, he will lose credibility on both sides. I am sure he is aware of this, and will follow through in some way.

Nevertheless, there is still the question of the Palestinians that remain. The UN is totally inadequate and incompetent at dealing with this. This is best dealt with between Trump, Netanyahu and Mohammad bin Salman. I believe there is a play there that is being investigated.
"Trump merely executed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995" Probably never occurred to him to wonder why nobody else had done this during the last twenty two years. (fools rush in were angels fear to walk!)!

"If Trump does not start withdrawing funds and aid" Interesting challenge for Trump, five out of the six countries that receive the most US foreign aid voted against the US; the other country is Israel.

Interesting tweet from the former CIA director

Trump Admin threat to retaliate against nations that exercise sovereign right in UN to oppose US position on Jerusalem is beyond outrageous.
Shows @realDonaldTrump expects blind loyalty and subservience from everyone—qualities usually found in narcissistic, vengeful autocrats.
