“Thank you for this great honor,” Trump writes. “It was a distinct pleasure to visit Israel during my first international trip as President of the United States…. I am thankful for your gesture and am moved to know that the people of Israel are encouraged by my decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

Even Tzur said, “The president of the United States took a brave and unprecedented step that none of his predecessors were willing to take and we must honor him for it. Jerusalem is a dream that is present in every Jew’s heart and Trump’s decision gives this dream clear international recognition.”
