May 14, 2018 will be remembered as the day President Donald J. Trump fulfilled America’s commitment to recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by officially moving its embassy to the holy city.
Other politicians spent twenty years promising to relocate the American embassy to Jerusalem and backing down out of fear; President Trump became the first president to keep this campaign promise.
As Israel faces major terror threats and extreme opposition from all across the world, our greatest ally in the Middle East needs to know that the United States is providing its full support.
President Trump’s decisive action strengthened our sacred alliance with Israel and reinforced a sovereign nation’s fundamental right to establish its own capital.
"On December 6th, 2017, at my direction, the United States finally and officially recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel. Today we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem." #USEmbassyJerusalem pic.twitter.com/lne5FB7sB8— The White House (@WhiteHouse) May 14, 2018
