Until recent years, the property would have been set to host lavish celebrations over the coming Fourth of July weekend. But under President Trump, the festivities have moved elsewhere.

The policy shift that precipitated the move, recognizing Jerusalem as the country’s capital, upended decades of U.S. foreign policy, which long held that the status of the city should be decided as part of a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Only two countries have their embassies in Jerusalem: the United States and Guatemala.
