While for the past 20 years, Congress and successive administrations have expressed a willingness to move our embassy, @POTUS Trump is actively considering when and how to move the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. #70toIsraelUN pic.twitter.com/hYkQ88vwm8— Vice President Mike Pence (@VP) November 28, 2017
While speaking at the Uited Nations, commemorating seventy years since the proclamation of the State of Israel, Vice President Pence announced that the United States is working on moving its embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.
This news is being met with an euphoric response from jews around the world celebrating Israel and its friendship and recognition from The United States of America.
Israeli officials expect @realDonaldTrump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announce that the US embassy will move there as early as Sunday, due to pressure from his Evangelical Christian supporters, according to scoop by @danawt
