Trump: Jerusalem declaration high point of presidency

(JTA) – President Donald Trump told an Israeli newspaper that his Dec. 6 declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was the high point of his time in office.

Replying to a question by Israel Hayom editor-in-chief Boaz Bismuth on whether Israel would have to give something in return for the declaration, Trump said both Israel and the Palestinians would need to compromise significantly to achieve peace.

Calling Jerusalem “your wonderful capital,” he added in the interview that its recognition as Israel’s capital was very important for many people whom Trump said thanked him. Trump described the move as an important promise he made and kept.
