US Embassy Set To Open Monday, In Jerusalem
After months of anticipation, the US Embassy in Israel will open in the historic city of Jerusalem. It is just another bold move by President Trump, one that has been proposed by many presidents before him. Trump is the only one that followed through. He has shown a pattern of keeping his word and his campaign promises.

According to Fox News:

The Trump administration says at least 50 staffers will work inside the United States’ new embassy in Jerusalem when it officially opens on Monday.

Senior administration officials previewing its opening told reporters the embassy will begin with a 50-to-60 person operation and grow from there.

The new embassy in Jerusalem is opening Monday to coincide with the 70th anniversary of Israel declaring its independence.

President Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December by directing the State Department to begin the move of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

This is also a move that many expected would take time, but the Trump Administration cut through the red tape to expedite the process and show Israel just how important of a partner they are.
