President Trump will record a video greeting for the opening ceremony of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, US ambassador to Israel David Friedman said in a briefing to reporters. He stressed that moving the embassy to Jerusalem is a U.S. interest and not part of any "Give and take" with Israel.

Details: 800 Israeli and American guests will participate in the ceremony, including Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, deputy secretary of state John Sullivan, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
