Ivanka Trump arrives in Israel ahead of U.S. embassy move

Donald Trump sent his daughter and son-in-law today, while he appeared on video, to celebrate the move of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.

No other countries have their embassies in Jerusalem with diplomats kept an hour away in Tel Aviv – so as not to show support for rival claims to the Holy City.

And although Donald Trump is fulfilling his election promise to move the embassy to Jerusalem, he also promised a peace accord between the Israelis and Palestinians.
