Washington, DC ’ Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) sent a letter to President-elect Donald Trump today expressing support for his policy to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and asking him to immediately take action upon assuming office. In total, 102 members of Congress signed on to this letter; you can find a copy of the letter here.
“Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the U.S. should maintain its embassy in Israel–s capital city,”? DeSantis said. “For decades, the State Department has indulged the conceit that Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel, even though the Jewish presence in Jerusalem goes back thousands of years. I encourage President Trump to send a message to the world that the United States stands with our friends in Israel by relocating our embassy to Jerusalem.”?
DeSantis also spoke on the House floor this morning to condemn the recent anti-Israel resolution adopted by the United Nations. Watch his speech here.
