Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s failure to keep a key campaign promise to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem:

“50 years ago, the liberation of Jerusalem during the Six Day War reunited the Jewish people with their historic capital city.  Israel's stewardship of Jerusalem has been tremendous and has included guaranteeing religious freedom for Christians and Muslims as well as Jews -- something that was nonexistent during the city's Arab occupation.  Yet, Israel is the only nation in the world where an American embassy is not located in its chosen capital city.  It is long past time that we rectify this error and locate our embassy in Jerusalem and it is deeply disappointing that the President has decided not to do so."

DeSantis and 101 of his colleagues previously sent a letter to Trump asking him to immediately move the embassy upon assuming office. You can find a copy of the letter here.
