But among the options under consideration is for Mr Trump to order his aides to develop a longer-term plan for the embassy's relocation to make clear his intention to do so eventually, according to one of the officials. A formal announcement could come as early as next week, the officials said.
The White House is considering new steps toward formally recognizing a unified Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the USA embassy there, sources told ABC News.
The officials weren't authorized to discuss the matter publicly and demanded anonymity.
Alarmed by reports that the Trump Administration is considering immediate action to move the US Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Americans for Peace Now is calling on President Trump to eschew this risky action. Unilateral American recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, before Israeli Jerusalem has been defined in bilateral negotiations, would pre-judge the outcome of peace talks.
It could, however, help satisfy the pro-Israel, right-wing base that helped him win the presidency and also please the Israeli government, a close USA ally.
Recognizing Jerusalem as "undivided" would likely dash Palestinian hopes of establishing in East Jerusalem the capital of their hoped-for future state, and could upend the White House's current attempts to revive the stalled peace process.
While the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act requires that the USA officially move the embassy to the holy city, every president since the act was passed has delayed the actual move.

Donald Trump Will Tee It Up With Tiger Woods And Dustin Johnson
Aides were mum on how he spent the time period, which is roughly the length of a round of golf, unless you play quickly. Donald Trump broke with White House custom on Friday by admitting he was playing golf.
While the White House plans have yet to be finalized, USA embassies are already warning host governments across the world to prepare for possible action, according to a report in The Independent.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told the AP of a potential embassy move: "No decision on this matter has been made yet".
Trump said during his presidential campaign that he would move the embassy to the disputed holy city.
Jerusalem annexed the Arab-majority eastern parts of the city after the Six Day War in 1967, a move never recognized by the bulk of the global community.
Mr Trump pledged on the campaign trail a year ago that he would move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a long-time goal of Republican politicians.
Some of Mr Trump's top aides have privately pushed for him to keep his campaign promise to satisfy a range of supporters, including evangelical Christians, while others have warned of the potential damage to U.S. relations with Muslim countries.
