Schumer Says He Told Trump to Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s “undivided” capital

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, D-NY, told President Trump to name Jerusalem as the “undivided” capital of Israel ahead of the President’s expected announcement of the move this week, Schumer told the Weekly Standard on Tuesday.

The White House said Tuesday that Trump will announce that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, but will hold off on moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Schumer told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that he supports the U.S. moving the embassy and criticized Trump’s “indecisiveness” on the issue.

“President Trump’s recent comments suggest his indecisiveness on the embassy’s relocation,” Schumer said. “As someone who strongly believes that Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel, I am calling for the US Embassy in Israel to be relocated to Jerusalem.”
