- Is it time for Trump to make good on his promise?
The US Senate has urged President Donald Trump to follow through on his campaign promise to relocate the US-Israeli embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Senate voted 90-0 in favor of a resolution introduced in May by Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., commemorating the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s reunification, reports Charisma.
The resolution urges the “president and all United States officials to abide by” the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, which calls on the U.S. to relocate its embassy and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Trump recently signed a 6 month waiver on moving the embassy, but says this does not affect his commitment to eventually relocate.
Trump “has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if that move happens, but only when,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
