Congressman Joe Wilson Attends U.S. Embassy Opening in Jerusalem

Jerusalem, Israel – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement after leading a congressional delegation to Jerusalem and attending the U.S. embassy opening this afternoon.

America’s bond with Israel is unique, and its strength is the foundation of American leadership in the Middle East. President Donald Trump kept his commitment to the American people by moving our embassy to Jerusalem, and clearly established that each country has an inherent right to choose its own capital. The people of Israel, especially Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, know they have a true ally in the White House, which protects American families.”
