“President Trump promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and he did so. He promised to move the American Embassy to Israel and he is doing so. Of course we will all celebrate this day, a real celebration, tomorrow.”
“President Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem affirms a great and simple truth. Jerusalem has been the capitol for the Jewish people for the past 3000 years! It’s been the capitol of our state for the past 70 years. It will remain our capitol for all time.”
“Thank you President Trump for you bold decision! Thank you for making the alliance between Isreal and the United States stronger than ever!” PM Netanyahu declared. (Video Below)
