Mr Trump says he is making good on USA legislation and presidential pledges dating back decades.
PLO Secretary General Saeb Erekat, on Monday, said that by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moving its embassy thereto, the Trump administration is violating its obligations under worldwide law, including UNSCR 478, and America's own commitments towards the peace process.
In December, US President Donald Trump had announced his decision of recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and asked Department of State to initiate the process to relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
However, the official announcement from the White House had Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan leading the delegation. "Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people - and the world is beginning to recognize this fact".
Ignoring all protests opposing recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, US President Donald Trump's administration has been moving towards relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to the city.
To the Palestinians it is indicative of what they say is the White House's pro-Israel bias.
Municipal workers erected signposts reading "US Embassy" in Hebrew, Arabic and English around the site, now a US consular building, in the city's Arnona neighbourhood.
Israel captured East Jerusalem from Jordanian control in the 1967 Middle East war and annexed it in a move not recognized internationally.
The worldwide community largely recognizes Tel Aviv as Israel's capital.
The signs read in English, Hebrew, and Arabic and were put in place one week before the USA officially transfers its embassy to the city, Reuters reported Monday.
Still, local residents are excited about the new move. The Palestinians, on the other hand, see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state and oppose any Israeli attempt to extend sovereignty.
The White House has revealed the members of the United States delegation to the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem next week.
"Paraguay President Horacio Cartes plans to come to Israel by the end of the month to open an embassy in Jerusalem", Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement.
