On Sunday Israel's acting foreign minister, Israel Katz, said on Twitter that Trump would sign a decree codifying such recognition, with Netanyahu present, on Monday.
However, Israel has repeatedly refused to do so and in 1981, it formally annexed the Syrian territory. Netanyahu has pressed USA presidents to recognize the land grab and Trump's readiness to acquiesce is proof of Netanyahu's influence in Washington.
Tel Aviv now receives 15 percent of its potable water from the region, after an unreasonable and highly inequitable distribution of the Jordan River system, according to a study by the London School of Economics, United Kingdom.
"President Trump appears poised to drive a wrecking ball through the global law that protects the population of the occupied Golan Heights", Eric Goldstein, HRW's deputy director in Middle East and North Africa warned.
Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi on Friday affirmed Jordan's unaltered stance on the Golan Heights, stressing they are occupied Syrian territory, as stipulated in all global legitimacy resolutions that clearly ban the forceful annexation of land.
The Syrian Golan is an integral part of these occupied territories, he underlined. However, others believe in Syria's right to the Golan and even have Syrian citizenship.
"I have to smash the wave of lies spread by (Benny) Gantz and (Yair) Lapid and (Moshe) Yaalon and (Gabi) Ashkenazi", Netanyahu said of the leaders of the centrist Blue and White electoral alliance.

But Trump denied that the policy shift was aimed at boosting his friend and ally ahead of the Knesset election that will decide Netanyahu's political fate.
Trump relies on pro-Israel evangelical Christians in the United States as part of his electoral base and has moved USA policy firmly in Israel's favour - most notably by declaring Jerusalem Israel's capital in 2017.
Those steps angered Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem, also captured by Israel in 1967, as the capital of a state in the occupied West Bank and Gaza.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham argued differently earlier this month during a trip to the Golan Heights with Netanyahu. The longtime Israeli leader faces a Knesset election on April 9 and hopes to showcase to voters at home that his relationship with Trump is too important to oust him from office.
"I've known the president and I've known his family and his team for a long time", Netanyahu said during a joint news conference then.
"(Trump's statement about the Golan) will really help Netanyahu", said Billha Ketter, 67, an event planner, speaking to Reuters in Rosh Pina, which abuts the Golan Heights.
