June 1, 2017

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released the below statement after President Trump signed a waiver delaying the move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

“As someone who believes that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel, I am deeply disappointed in President Trump’s decision. Will those who criticized President Obama for not moving the Embassy make their voices just as loud and just as strong when it comes to President Trump’s failure to move the Embassy?”
