Re: The U.S. Legal Position on Why the Embassy Should be Moved.

Excellent post.

Another issue, however, is that foreign policy is the prerogative of the President, including where the embassy should be. Thus Clinton, Bush, Obama and initially Trump were well within their rights to decide to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv, and Trump is well within his rights to decide to move it to Jerusalem.

There is no other law specifying that the embassy of the United States must be in the capital of the country. There is no law specifying that we need to move our embassy in Sri Lanka, Burma, Tanzania or Nigeria to their current capitals from their former capitals.
