  • US President Donald Trump delivers a statement on Jerusalem from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington DC

US President Donald Trump has called for calm and moderation in the Middle East, the White House said today, amid reports of clashes in the region following his decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Raw video: Media and internet critics pounce after President Trump garbled part of his Jerusalem statement; the White House says the president was suffering from dry mouth.

During the party, Trump referenced his decision Wednesday to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"I fulfilled my campaign promise", Trump later tweeted.

The president broke with decades of USA policy with the Jerusalem announcement, putting the United States at odds with most other countries. Soon, all were stunned to find that for eight days, the lamp continued to burn brightly-a sign of God's presence in his dwelling place and a symbol of the faith and resilience of the Jewish people.

In Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his nation was "profoundly grateful" and that Mr. Trump's announcement was an "important step toward peace". Beside them was his daughter Ivanka and her husband, senior adviser Jared Kushner, and the president's grandchildren, whom he noted are Jewish.

He was also accompanied on stage by Louise Lawrence-Israel, a Holocaust survivor originally from the Netherlands, who shared the story of childhood under Nazi Germany's rule, saying that "people let this happen".

Trump officials curtailed the size of the annual Hannukah party, inviting 300 guests to the single event rather than hosting 1,700 over the course of two nights as past administrations had done, leaving Democratic members of Congress off the list, the New York Times reported.

Sanders said Trump was scheduled to have a routine medical exam "early next year" at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, as most presidents have done historically.
