WASHINGTON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - The White House said on Thursday it was not aware of any other country that planned to follow President Donald Trump's lead and recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"I'm not aware of any countries that we anticipate that happening at any point soon," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters. "I'm not saying that they aren't, but I'm not aware of them." (Reporting by Steve Holland; Writing by Justin Mitchell; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
