Grotham Applauds Recognition Of Jerusalem As Israeli Capital

Congressman Glenn Grothman recently applauded President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. Grothman says, “The decision by President Trump sends a strong message of support for Israel that wavered under the anti-Israeli policies of President Obama.” Grothman’s Democratic challenger in next year’s election Dan Kohl also supports the move but says, “It pains me to see how the Administration is using Jerusalem as a political football.”
