Earlier in the day, Trump said in a statement that the UN Security Council resolution should be vetoed.
Voting on the resolution, which states the settlements in the West Bank violate international law, was scheduled for Thursday afternoon, but the UN Security Council postponed the session.
The situation with Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem has recently been aggravated by the Israeli legislative proposals to legalize settler buildings constructed on land the Palestinians consider is theirs. The bill has so far passed its first hearing.
More than 500,000 Jewish settlers live in the West Bank, including in East Jerusalem, according to the United Nations.
