WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on the Trump Administration’s decision to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Graham is a long-time supporter of making this important change in United States policy.
“I fully support the Trump Administration’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel because this statement reflects the reality on the ground for the last 3,000 years.
