US Embassy to Stay in Jerusalem Under Biden Administration

Antony Blinken, President Joe Biden’s pick to lead the State Department, promised to keep the US Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem, maintaining one of President Trump’s key foreign policy achievements. Blinken announced the decision during his Senate confirmation, saying that, “The Biden administration has no intention of moving the US Embassy in Israel, from Jerusalem back to Tel Aviv.” And affirmed that the US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

I am very happy to hear that Blinken and the Biden administration are maintaining this element of Trump’s policy in Israel. The Biden administration and future presidential administrations will only benefit immensely from the hard work President Trump and his team did in Israel to establish a firm peace in the Middle East.
