RJC Statement on the Opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel – Today RJC National Chairman Norm Coleman released the following statement:

Today I have the honor to lead the RJC delegation at the dedication of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. This is a day that the RJC has been working towards for over thirty years. But the credit for today goes to our President, Donald J. Trump. We have been told by administrations, both Republican and Democrat, that they would take this monumental step, only to be disappointed every six months, when a President would sign another waiver. Not President Trump: he made sure that this year we are finally in Jerusalem!

The RJC thanks President Trump for making this happen. We also want to recognize the hard work of Vice President Mike Pence, Ambassador David Friedman, Jared Kushner, and Jason Greenblatt to make this move happen. We also recognize Ivanka Trump, Secretary Mnuchin, and Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan for being here as part of the official U.S. delegation. Thank you also to the Senate and House delegations who came here to be part of this historic event.
