Since its inception, the House Freedom Caucus has been nothing but a thorn in the side of congressional Democrats and Democratic-thinking congressional Republicans, who have opposed a less government, pro-liberty American agenda in Washington, D.C.The group has first cast out by moderate Republican legislators and Democrats as “Tea Party” obstructionists, or as “wacko birds,” as Senator John McCain (R) called a few of their Senate colleagues
The Freedom Caucus has been so effective in staving back House Democrats and GOP leadership, that now critiques and opponents are all-but forced to first consult with the caucus before pressing any sort of legislation.
Because the caucus has been so effective, the Israel Victory Caucus emerged this past summer in within that country’s governing body, the Knesset.
This past week, the Israeli caucus visited with its American brethren in Washington, D.C. to discuss the two nations relationship under President Trump’s administration
The American greeting party was led by Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis (R), whose office put out a press release to announce the visit.“It has been an honor to meet with the Israeli members of the Israel Victory Caucus this week and discuss the cherished friendship between our two nations,” DeSantis said. “We agree that the greatest obstacle to peace is the refusal of Palestinians to acknowledge that Israel is the legitimate national home of the Jewish People. America can help remove that obstacle by relocating our embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel and a symbol of the Jewish People’s historic connection to the land. I am encouraged by President Trump’s promise that it is a question of when, not if, he will choose to relocate the American embassy and I applaud his administration for standing strong by Israel.”
During the historic 2016 presidential election, then-candidate Trump promised to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem if he was elected president. Once elected president, President Trump reiterated his desire to move the embassy to Jerusalem.
