The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump Officially Declares Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.

The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has officially declared Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Read his tweet stating his position below!

His announcement has brought unrest to the whole of Middle East, but Trump remains resilient in his decision.

Every previous American president has exercised the law’s waiver refusing to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city,’ Trump said. ‘Some say they lacked courage… after two decades delaying recognition has done nothing to achieve peace. It would be folly to assume repeating this would make a better result. I have determined that it is time to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous presidents have made this a major promise they have failed to deliver.’
Trump added that Jerusalem must remain a holy site for Jews, Christians and Muslims, all of whom worship in the city.

The UN and almost every country in the world currently refuse to accept that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital, with most major embassies functioning in the sea-side business capital, Tel Aviv. The international consensus is that East Jerusalem is occupied territory, just like the West Bank.

The French president Emmanuel Macron responded to the ‘unilateral’ move, saying:

This decision is a regrettable decision that France does not approve of and goes against international law and all the resolutions of the UN Security Council.’
