Former Vice President Joe Biden says he will leave the United States Embassy in Jerusalem if he wins this fall's presidential election.
Biden emphasizes, however, that he disagrees with Trump's controversial 2017 decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv. The decision led to extensive Palestinian demonstrations on the Gaza Strip.
The embassy in Jerusalem opened in May 2018.
Biden says the move should not have taken place unless it was part of a broader Middle East peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
“But now that it's done, I wouldn't move the embassy back to Tel Aviv,” Biden said during a virtual fundraising campaign Wednesday.
