New US Embassy in Jerusalem Will Open in May 2018 to Celebrate Israel's 70th Anniversary
Officials tell the Associated Press that the new US Embassy in Jerusalem will open much earlier than some had predicted.
They're working to make the move by May 2018 in celebration of Israel's 70th anniversary.
Speaking at CPAC Friday, President Trump said, "We officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel."
"Every president campaigned on, 'We're gonna move the embassy,' then they never pulled it off," he continued. "It's the right thing to do."
