Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi) issued a statement calling on President Elect Donald Trump to make good on his campaign promise to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “I congratulate US President Elect Donald Trump, a true friend of Israel,” Shaked said. “This is an opportunity for the American Administration to move the United States’ embassy to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital city.” Shaked noted that “such a move would symbolize the tight connection and deep friendship between our two countries.” Back in October, Ivanka Trump told assembled members of The Shul of Bal Harbour in Surfside, Florida, that her father would “100 percent” move the US embassy to Jerusalem should he be elected president.
