Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat expresses gratitude to the US president for “standing with Israel and standing with the truth.”

On Monday, Donald Trump made history as the first American president to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish state.

Following that courageous move, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat issued a statement of appreciation to Trump for bringing the US embassy to its rightful home.

As Barkat explains, this should bring a chain reaction, as other countries are now following suit.

Barkat also predicts a wonderful future for Jerusalem under leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the city returns to its former glory.

It’s important to show appreciation to Trump for standing with Israel and doing what is right. Watch and hear Barkat’s inspiring words!

תודה לך הנשיא טראמפ שעמדת לצד העם היהודי וירושלים!שתפו כדי שמדינות אחרות יצטרפו – יחד נחזיר את ירושלים לגדולתה!—Thank you, President Trump, for standing with the Jewish people and Jerusalem! Share to encourage other countries to join the movement – together we will make Jerusalem great again!
