Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson is reportedly "outraged" by comments made by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson after America's top diplomat appeared to waver on the US president's pledge to relocate the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, according to Channel 2 Monday.

Speaking with Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press, Tillerson said the president's decision will be informed "by the parties involved" in the Middle East peace process.

"The president, I think rightly, has taken a very deliberative approach to understanding the issue itself, listening to input from all interested parties in the region, and understanding, in the context of a peace initiative, what impact would such a move have," Tillerson said.

Trump campaigned on a promise to move the embassy, but quickly changed course after taking office, advised by Mideast allies that such an action would roil the region and undermine his efforts to jumpstart peace talks.
