Trump slammed previous administrations for not moving the diplomatic mission to bestow U.S. recognition on the Israeli claim to the city.
“They never moved the embassy to Jerusalem, thereby making Jerusalem the capital of Israel, which I did,” Trump said.
“You know who appreciate it the most, are the evangelical Christians,” he added.
Palestinians want the eastern part of Jerusalem for the capital of their future state and the move by Trump was denounced by the Palestinian Authority.
The president also claimed “nothing happened” during the ceremony of opening the new embassy, though clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces that day left dozens dead in the Gaza Strip.
“Nobody has been worse to Israel than President Obama and Biden,” said Trump, citing the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran(Vanguard).
