"What we are trying to is to implement the two-state solution (based) on the border of June 1967 - that is to establish a sovereign, independent state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital living in security and peace side by side with the state of Israel", he said.

Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act in 1995, which called on the United States to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move its embassy there. "He has told Trump that Palestinians are impossible negotiating partners and make demands that Israel can never meet".
It's unclear whether Tillerson is reflecting the viewpoint of the president, or simply discussing how he sees the embassy move in the grand scheme of his vision for the Middle East.
Israelis and Palestinians have been at odds since Israel was established in 1948.
Donald Trump seemed to understand this during the campaign, but now he apparently is getting caught up in the "peace process" chimera that has ensnared so many of his predecessors. "This is not your territory, but rather part of the West Bank". Israel is our ally, the Palestinians are not.
