Trump officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, orders US embassy move

December 6, 2017

Donald_Trump_JerusalemPresident Trump said Wednesday he is formally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and is ordering the State Department to begin moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” the president said during a speech in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.

Trump added, “Jerusalem is not just the heart of three great religions, but it is now also the heart of one of the most successful democracies in the world.”

The move fulfills a campaign promise made to religious conservatives. But it could also inflame tensions across the Middle East.

    You are blind, Trump did the right thing. There have been many times Israel offered a two nation solution. The Palestinesians have refused each time THEIR ONLY SOLUTION is the utter destruction of Israel!

    Peace in the middle east just got a little harder and our countries leadership just got a little weaker. Our allies except for one didn’t support this move and the only one that is applauding is the one that we give the most money to for defense and the one least willing to work for peace since if they are at peace with their neighbor the money could stop. There are reasons no other country recognizes Jerusalem as the capital but Trump being Trump they don’t matter. Well today the world is just a little less safe for Americans thank to our President.
