'I fully support moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem'
After years of broken promises by Democrats and Republicans, today we are making history. I wholeheartedly agree with President Trump's historic decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel's eternal capital of Jerusalem. My visit last week to the Jewish State reconfirmed for me the importance of deepening diplomatic, economic and security-related ties with our ally in the Middle East. Too many politicians, including my opponent Kirsten Gillibrand, have taken for granted or forsaken our special relationship with Israel in the quest for the White House. As U.S. senator, I pledge to stand united with Israel against the virulent anti-Semitism of the BDS agenda here at home and in the face of growing threats abroad from Iran and radical Islamic terrorism.
