One year after the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem, President Donald Trump called it “a proud reminder of our strong relationship with Israel.”

The Jerusalem municipality projected Israeli and American flags onto the walls of the Old City.

Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on December 6, 2017 and moved the embassy into the building formerly housing the US consulate in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018.  The move was timed to coincide with the English anniversary of Israel’s founding in 1948.
