On the 9th of December Oliver was invited onto BBC World to discuss the implications of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Oliver expressed concern that the decision would do little to advance peace and would instead further complicate an already moribund peace process.  A number of other issues were also explored, including the visit of Vice-President Pence to the region, which Oliver warned could be perceived as insensitive due to its timing, and the potential for the decision to empower the narrative of extremist groups.
