President Trump is expected to make one of the biggest announcements of his presidency today. Multiple news outlets are reporting that President Trump is going to announce major changes to American policy in the Middle East by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The LIVE announcement is set to begin soon. Watch the full speech live in the video below.
Now, one of the most famous pastors in America, Dr. Robert Jeffress, has released a major statement about the President's decision. Read his full statement below:
“Jerusalem is and should be recognized as the capital of Israel. It is David’s capital, the site of the First and Second Temples, the focus of the historians’ accounts, the Psalmists’ songs and the prophets’ visions. It is the place where Jesus, a Jew himself, was crucified, and where he was resurrected. It is the place where he will set foot again on earth at his second coming.
“President Donald J. Trump has demonstrated true leadership today by recognizing Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel. President Trump is a modern-day profile in courage, accomplishing what no other president has been willing to do.
“It took courage for President Harry S. Truman to recognize Israel as a nation in 1948, and it took courage for President Donald J. Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel today. He is a blessing not only to our nation, but to Israel as well.
“Jerusalem has been the object of the affection of both Jews and Christians down through history and the touchstone of prophecy. But most importantly, God gave Jerusalem — and the rest of the Holy Land — to the Jewish people.
