Not even 24 hours after Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barat said that he was confident in the incoming Trump administration moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Kellyanne Conway responds, confirming that is a “big priority.”
“He made that very clear during the campaign … and as president-elect, I’ve heard him repeat it several times privately if not publicly,” Conway said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show. “It’s something that our great friend in the Middle East would appreciate and it’s something that a lot of Jewish Americans have also expressed their preference for.”
The Washington Examiner reports:
Conway said moving the embassy to Jerusalem would be “an easy thing for [Trump] to do,” despite many of his predecessors promising to do the same but later postponing the move over concerns about interfering with the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
“People scratch their heads and wonder why it wasn’t done,” Conway said, noting that Trump’s national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn agrees with the president-elect in that his administration should see to it that the embassy move finally happens.
“I’ve talked to Gen. Flynn very recently [and] he said his top three priorities as [national security adviser] will be government reform, and will be peace and security, and also he told me stabilization in the Middle East,” she said.
This would be huge win for Israel and America — recognizing the true capital of Israel would strengthen relations tremendously.
