And so, the world changes a bit more. 70 years to the day, after the United States recognized the State of Israel, the first in the world to do so, when it declared its independence, the United States, opens its embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. It is also 51 years since Jerusalem was reunited after the Six Day War.
Long overdue, in fact, mandated when Clinton was president, finally, it is done. You can watch it here.
Today, more than five decades after the reunification of Jerusalem, this holy city will be home to our embassy. This is concrete affirmation of America’s commitment to the Jewish state and her people. America stands with Israel in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital. pic.twitter.com/6PaoQGjN7f
