President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital: “It’s time to acknowledge the obvious” and ordered the State Department to begin moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel”.
It’s something that needs to be done.”
But to Pope Francis this is absolutely a terrible idea. He has voiced ‘deep concern’ over Trump’s decision, and called for all to honour United Nations resolutions on the city, which is sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.
