NEW YORK – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump formally announced that if he is elected, the United States will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capitol city.

“I have said on numerous occasions that in a Trump Administration, the United States will recognize Jerusalem as the one true capital of Israel,” Mr. Trump said in a statement Thursday.

“The United Nations’ attempt to disconnect the State of Israel from Jerusalem is a one-sided attempt to ignore Israel’s 3,000-year bond to its capital city, and is further evidence of the enormous anti-Israel bias of the UN. Jerusalem is the enduring capital of the Jewish People and the overwhelming majority of Congress has voted to recognize Jerusalem as just that. Further, the decision by the Obama Administration to strike the word ‘Israel’ after the word ‘Jerusalem’ in the President’s prepared text was a capitulation to Israel’s enemies, and a posthumous embarrassment to Shimon Peres, whose memory the President was attempting to honor. In a Trump Administration, Israel will have a true, loyal and lasting friend in the United States of America.”

Currently, Israel claims Jerusalem as its capitol city, but the city is run by Palestine, which claims that Israel illegally occupies half of the city along with other disputed territories.  Much of the Arab world rejects Israel’s claim to the city.

    I voted for Trump to hasten the revolution, not to appease the Christian vote, like he’s doing here.

    The 2 fly baits will give you anything as long as you pay for it and for the people who cannot pay for it. Politics 101 – National media says -OBE and the Hag both smell really bad like satanic sulfur?

    Trump does hate brown people, so this stance is not surprising

    Israel is fortunate to have such a strong leader. Obama, with his suicidal appeasement of radical Islam, is not fit to carry Ben’s luggage.

      Ben’s a 33rd degree free mason, do you understand what that means, if not you need to research that, also all of these leaders are from the 13 royal bloodlines they are all related, all of them, they are selected not elected.
