JNS.org – Donald Trump, the front-runner in the polls for the Republican presidential nomination, said he supports moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Such a move would be “very good” for Israel, Trump said in an interview with CBN News, adding, “I am for that a hundred percent.” At a Republican Jewish Coalition event in December, Trump was booed when he stopped short of making the same assertion about the embassy and the status of Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital.

Trump also called the newly implemented nuclear deal between the P5+1 nations and Iran a “tremendous liability” to Israel that may lead to broad nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

“I will be very good to Israel,” Trump said. “I will back Israel. We have a president that I think is the worst thing that’s ever happened to Israel, but I’ll be backing it very strongly. They’re our best ally; they’re our best ally in the Middle East. They’ve really been loyal to us — we have not been loyal to them.”

    Note that Trump expressed support for moving our embassy to Israel’s capitol, not at AIPAC or JFNA, but for CBN.

    We are either too scared to support an undivided Jerusalem or too obsessed with gay marriage and abortion for it to even matter.

    Too bad, he will never become President.

  • If I were a president I will back Israel

    We LOVE Trump, he will be the best jobs President g-d has ever given us BH the next President. I was never a huge fan. never watched his show on NBC but he is by FAR the best most honest and competent candidate running and by far the best for American Jews many of whom do not understand how our country works. Praying daily for our chance to make the USA great again.
