Statement from Dr. Kelli Ward on President Trump’s announcement to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, relocate U.S. embassy

Tempe, AZ – Dr. Kelli Ward of Arizona, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement today on President Trump’s decision to recognize the city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and relocate the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

“I applaud President Trump for having the vision and courage to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the united and eternal capital of Israel.”

“This move is long overdue. There is no doubt Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, and the Jewish people have a unique and special connection to this city that spans thousands of years. The Knesset and many government ministries are in Jerusalem, which makes the president’s decision to recognize it as Israel's capital a realistic and appropriate one.”

“This year marked the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, which saw a city that was divided by war and stalemate for nearly 20 years brought back together, and next year we will join our Israeli friends in celebrating the 70th anniversary of Israel's founding.”

“I recently returned from a two-week trip to Israel and was inspired by the history of this great country and the resilient spirit of the Jewish people. The alliance that America shares with Israel can never be broken, and we should continue to strengthen the bonds that we share with our greatest friend and ally in the Middle East as all parties strive toward achieving lasting peace in the region.”
