Congressman Matt Gaetz Issues Statement Supporting President Trump’s Decision to Move U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem

Washington, D.C. — Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) issued the following statement in support of President Donald Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the nation’s capital of Jerusalem. 

 

“Our nation’s embassy is currently in Tel Aviv, which is disrespectful, dismissive, and wrong. Moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem will send the Palestinian Authority a message that their days of denying Israel’s existence are over, and that they must become an honest partner in peace. I commend President Trump today for honoring our friend and ally Israel and moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem — the eternal, undivided capital of Israel,” Rep. Gaetz said.

 

Earlier last week, Rep. Gaetz spoke House floor in favor of moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Click HERE or below to watch the floor speech.
