Transcript: Where Is The U.S. Embassy Moving Too?

glenn mills will have live reports. >> and the hacking allegations aren't the only issue facing donald trump this morning. trump says he intends to move the u.s. he will ba significance in israel from tell tel aviv to jerusalem. thank you for being here ryan. >> that be ought sly. >> these hacking allegation what's do you make of them >> that they'ring from. they're unconfirmed at this point. the f.b.i. will try to figure out the veracity of it try to corroborate. but it is what -- it's consistent with what the intelligent intelligence community has said before which is the russias build files on both candidates to try to delegitimize them. they only used the information on hillary clinton. the threat is they have information they can use as trump as president. >> i'm sure that situation isn't going away. let's go to the embassy in israel. why the idea that trump moving it is to controversial? >> well, for a new reasons. one is that technically jerusalem is still not isreali territory. jerusalem was supposed to be under the 1947 plan in internationally administered city during those wars in '49, '76. the isrealis took control of that city. but there are no embassies in jerusalem. >> this would be the first? >> yes. there are four consulates and one is ours but there are no embassies. this would be a major statement. >> does this have an impact on our relations with israel? >> israel would be supportive of this. the the surrounding countries would not. a lot of our allies have said don't do it. it would be a significant shift in that direction. >> what would be some of the biggest claims that critics are making against this move? >> that's the big one is that it would hurt the already harmed peace process. that trying to get the palestinians to see the u.s. as an honest broker would be very difficult if we moved our embassy to jerusalem and kind of gave more key dense to israel's claim over that territory. q. you heard president clin mentioned this before, bush mentioned the same idea. but trump is saying this and picking it up again. why is this something several presidents have said it's something they'd like to? >> and congress, too. back in the '80s congress requested that the embassy be moved to jerusalem. so this isn't something new. it's been a part of american politics. but presidents have always pushed that off because of the consequences that they would face not only in the region but with our allies and europe and elsewhere. >> why is it so attractive? >> i think it is attractive to certain parts of the american political democrat graphic -- demographic. a lot of people like the idea of siding with israel. this is more of a move in that direction. it certainly would ease diplomatic relations since israel has its capitol in jerusalem. having our embassy there would facilitate stronger relations with that country. there are reasons to move and there's some political pressure. with you there have been many reasons why presidents have resisted that offer over the years >> do you think this is likely? >> it's more likely with this president thean previous presidents. with clinton and bush you got a sense that they were going to wait and see whether there was actually kind of the political will to do it in the united states. with trump, he just selected an ambassador to israel that is seth -- supportive of that. >> i think it's more likely to happen in his administration than in the past. >> like with the rest of the trump administration we'll wait and see. where do we go to get more information on the work you're doing? >> we have our website. we're on facebook, we're on twitter. lots of great things happening this month. we have a cider security cons conference and a couple other things. check us out. >> there you go. ryan vogel. thank you for being with us as always ryan. >> my pleasure.
