According to who?

Last time I checked Jerusalem's status is a major issue between Israel and the Palestinians. Israel has occupied the eastern part of the city since 1967 and the Six-Day-War.

how do you figure that Tel Aviv is the capital then?

I don't think you can compare Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. The latter was founded by Jews early in the 20th century, whereas the former has a long complicated history and is an important place for Jews, Christians and Muslims alike.

I know that's why Jerusalem is the rightful capital

Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law, called Michael Flynn in December 2016 and told him to call members of the UN Security Council in an effort to stop a vote on a resolution critical of Israeli settlement policy, according to a person who was present in the room when Flynn took the call.
