Liberals are fuming today after President Donald Trump officially opened the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel.
“The plain reality that Israel’s capital is Jerusalem,” Trump said in a video address at the embassy’s opening. Breitbart reported that Trump added that the decision about the location of the embassy was “a long time coming.”
Trump had announced that he would be moving the embassy’s location to Jerusalem back in December, fulfilling a major campaign promise.
“Today we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem and we’re opening it many, many years ahead of schedule,” he said, adding that the United States was still committed to peace in the Middle East and between Israel and the Palestinians.
“We extend a hand in friendship to Israel, the Palestinians, and to all of their neighbors,” he said. “May there be peace.”
This move to finally acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital establishes President Trump as perhaps the most pro-Israel president America has ever had. Trump praised this decision while speaking in Washington a few months ago.
“I said, ‘I have to do it, because its the right thing to do,’” Trump said of his conversations with world leaders leading up to the decision. “The campaign against it was so incredible. But you know what, the campaign for it was also incredible.”
Today is a historical day for the State of Israel and the Jewish people. Many have promised but only you have finally moved the US Embassy to Jerusalem – the capital of Israel.
Thank you President Trump! You are a true friend of Israel! 🇺🇸🇮🇱
