Duncan Praises President Trump for Jerusalem Decision

Dec 6, 2017 Issues: Foreign Affairs

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jeff Duncan issued the following statement after President Trump’s announcement that the United States will officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel:

“I applaud President Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and promising to move the U.S. Embassy to reflect this change in policy. This decision is in clear contrast to the last administration’s anti-Israel sentiments, and it is refreshing to have a leader in the White House who supports and stands with our strong ally. I agree with President Trump that this decision is in the best interest of the United States as we work towards lasting peace.”
