Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced they would move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem:

“President Trump has fulfilled another promise by moving the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the eternal capital of the Jewish people in Jerusalem.  While the previous administration attacked one of our strongest allies in the United Nations, and supported the disastrous Iran deal, the Trump Administration has reasserted the strength in our alliance with the state and people of Israel.  As the nation with the strongest commitment to democratic ideals, peace and liberty in the Middle East, President Trump is sending a clear message to the world that reaffirms our deep commitment to Israel with this historic action.”

Congressman Barletta joined with 101 of his colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives in a letter to then President-Elect Trump in support of moving the American embassy to Jerusalem. You can read the letter HERE.
