Washington, D.C. – President Donald Trump is expected to make a speech next week recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, had this to say:
“I happily anticipate President Trump’s upcoming statement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of the Jewish state of Israel. Six months ago, UNESCO chose to ignore history when they passed a resolution denying Israel any claim to the city of Jerusalem.
“Such a responsive statement from our nation will send a clear message – we support Israel, our strongest and only true democratic ally in the Middle East, despite the U.N.’s attempt to undermine Israel’s very existence. Concerned Women for America is thankful for President Trump’s dedication to the Jewish state.
“This is an excellent first step, and I hope it is exactly that – a first step in fulfilling President Trump’s campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy to Israel’s eternal and indivisible capital city of Jerusalem. Recognizing that Jerusalem is the capital assumes that the United States respects Israel’s capital city and will at some point move our embassy.”
