Schumer Offers Rare Praise For President Trump

 

Senator Chuck Schumer and President Donald Trump rarely see eye to eye. But today the Senator offered rare praise for the president, lauding his move of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

According to The Hill:

In a rare moment of agreement with President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday praised President the move of the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“In a long overdue move, we have moved our embassy to Jerusalem. Every nation should have the right to choose its capital,” Schumer said in a statement. “I sponsored legislation to do this two decades ago, and I applaud President Trump for doing it.”

The statement echoed a sentiment Trump expressed in a video message presented at the embassy opening, in which the president said the move had “been a long time coming.”

But the embassy’s official opening Monday was also marked by a bloody day on Israel’s border with the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

This is just another promise kept by Trump and one that all of his predecessors failed to accomplish.
