Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman David Kustoff (TN-08), issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the United States embassy opening in Jerusalem.

“Today marks an important day for our greatest ally Israel. After years of talk and no action from previous administrations, last year, President Trump kept his promise and moved the United States embassy to Jerusalem. This act sent a message to the world that the United States officially recognizes Jerusalem as the unquestionable capital of Israel. The United States will always stand shoulder to shoulder with our greatest friend and ally, and today is a day that should be celebrated for years to come.”
