Yesterday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
After meeting for over an hour in Trump’s residence, Trump made an announcement that would shake U.S. foreign policy to its core if he is elected…
Donald Trump announced he would recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem if elected as president in November.
Mr. Trump recognized that Israel and its citizens have suffered far too long on the front lines of Islamic terrorism. He agreed with Prime Minister Netanyahu that the Israeli people want a just and lasting peace with their neighbors, but that peace will only come when the Palestinians renounce hatred and violence and accept Israel as a Jewish State.
Finally, Mr. Trump acknowledged that Jerusalem has been the eternal capital of the Jewish People for over 3000 years, and that the United States, under a Trump administration, will finally accept the long-standing Congressional mandate to recognize Jerusalem as the undivided capital of the State of Israel.
Shifting the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to “the eternal capital of the Jews People”, Jerusalem, would reverse 68 years of American foreign policy.
Trump is uniting with Netanyahu to fight Palestinian hatred as well as radical Islamic terrorism.
Although Democratic presidential candidate also met with Israel’s Prime Minister, no announcement of Trump’s magnitude was made by the Clinton campaign.
