The Honorable Donald Trump

President-Elect of the United States
Transition Team Headquarters Trump Tower
New York, NY
Dear President-Elect Trump,
Congratulations on your recent victory in the presidential election.
During your campaign, you made a forceful pledge to move our American embassy in
Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the state
of Israel.
We write to express support for this policy and to urge you to take swift action to relocate
our embassy to Jerusalem as soon as you take office.
Israel is one of the United States closest allies and stands alone in the Middle East for its
commitment to democratic ideals. Moving the embassy will strengthen the unique alliance
between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel
in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital.
This action is all the more urgent in light of the anti-Israel Resolution 2334, adopted by
the United Nations Security Council on December 23, 2016. The resolution invites renewed
diplomatic hostility and economic warfare against Israel, and we must act urgently to mitigate its
consequences and to reaffirm our steadfast commitment to Israel.
We hope that you will stand with Israel on this important issue, and we look forward to
working with you in the years ahead on similar matters.

Members of Congress
