President 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.
