US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, said that Trump’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem is a highly symbolic move that exhibited courage.
“It’s a big day,” she said. “[Trump] listened to the will of the American people. He made a symbolic move that we are committed to the peace process.”
Haley said that Trump showed courage when he did not choose to kick the can down the road, and instead is abiding by the 1995 law that called for the embassy to be moved.
