Senator David Perdue: Jerusalem Is Unquestionably Israel’s Capital

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, comments on the U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem, Israel on Monday:

“Jerusalem is unquestionably Israel’s capital, and it’s past time the United States recognize that fact. I applaud President Trump for fulfilling yet another promise he made to the American people. After eight years of weak support from the Obama Administration, this president’s actions send a powerful message to the world – the United States stands shoulder to shoulder with Israel. Now, we have seen ten other countries follow President Trump’s lead and discuss moving their embassies to Jerusalem. On my first international trip as a U.S. Senator, I met with Prime Minister Netanyahu and personally expressed the United States’ strong support for our friend and ally Israel.”


Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
