White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said she was not aware of any other country's commitment to follow the US's lead and move their embassy to Jerusalem during a daily press briefing.

"I'm not aware of any countries' commitment to follow suit in this," she said.

When asked if any other countries might either move their embassy or recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Sanders was equally tepid.

"I'm not aware of any countries that we anticipate that happening at any point soon-- I'm not saying that they aren't-- but I'm not aware of it."

She said Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem was "courageous and bold."
