It appears as if President Trump will make good on yet another campaign promise.
During the 2016 presidential election cycle, Trump stated that he would recognize Jerusalem as being the true capital of Israel by moving the US embassy to that city.
A little over a year after winning the presidency, Trump is expected to announce that he will indeed move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that many Republican legislators like Florida Congressmen Ron DeSantis and Dennis Ross are applauding.
“We need to send a clear message to the world that we support Israel and recognize Jerusalem as its eternal capital,” said Rep. Dennis A. Ross. “While we wait for tomorrow’s announcement from President Trump, I and my fellow members of Congress are hopeful that relocating the embassy will strengthen our vital alliance and send a clear message to the world: America stands with Israel.” –Rep. Dennis Ross (R)
Meanwhile, just about every single Muslim nation, including US ally Jordan, opposes the move, citing that it will send a negative message to Islamists, prompting them to find another excuse to continue their “jihad.”
