Multiple White House officials told CNN that President Donald Trump's decision to proclaim Jerusalem the capital of Israel could derail the mideast peace process.

"We're prepared for derailment — temporary, I hope. Pretty sure it will be temporary," a senior White House official told the network.

Said another official, "A lot of people put their heads into this decision to see how do we make this happen without at the same time throwing the peace process out of the window."

Another official admitted to CNN that Trump's decision, which carries with it plans to move the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, may result in "some short term pain, but [we] think it will help in the long run."

Senior adviser to the president Jared Kushner is trying to help broker peace in the Middle East and said Wednesday that America's declaration Jerusalem is Israel's capital will not threaten peace efforts.
