Trump wanted to seem "pro-Israel" and focused on "making a deal," two advisers told the Post.

According to the newspaper, some administration officials voicing their support for the decision included Vice President Pence and adviser Jared Kushner, who is also Trump's son-in-law.

Others, though, advocated against the move, including Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonWhite House aides planned to announce McMaster with other departures: report Trump considered ousting Kelly and serving as his own chief of staff: report Trump replaces McMaster with Bolton as national security adviser MORE and Defense Secretary James MattisJames Norman MattisOvernight Defense: Trump replaces McMaster with Bolton | .3T omnibus awaits Senate vote | Bill gives Pentagon flexibility on spending | State approves B arms sale to Saudis State Dept. announces B in weapons sales to Saudi Arabia Mattis: Saudi Arabia 'part of the solution' in Yemen civil war MORE.

Trump on Wednesday recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced plans to relocate the U.S. Embassy there.

"I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel," Trump said during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

Trump has vowed to broker a historic peace accord between Israel and Palestine. On Wednesday, he said he will try to resolve the decades-old conflict his way, arguing that past approaches, such as delaying the recognition, have not worked.

“It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result,” he said, calling his announcement “a long-overdue step to advance the peace process and work towards a lasting agreement.”

Arab and European leaders warned that formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital would push Middle East peace talks further off track.
