Pastor Hagee: Trump Earned 'Political Immortality' Moving Embassy

Pastor Hagee: Trump Earned 'Political Immortality' Moving Embassy

By    |   Friday, 11 May 2018 01:28 PM

Pastor John Hagee, the founder and national director of Christians United for Israel, said he told President Donald Trump that by moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, he had earned "political immortality."

"I told him the moment that you do that, I believe that you will step into political immortality. Because you are having the courage to do what other presidents did not have the courage to do," Hagee said in a Friday Breitbart interview.

Moving the embassy will solidify the bond between the U.S. and Israel, Hagee said.

"For decades America has referred to Israel as ‘our dearest friend in the Middle East.' But we never put our embassy there, when in fact our embassy was located in the capital cities of other nations that were run by tyrants and dictators," Hagee said.

"President Trump has demonstrated courage under fire and has pronounced Jerusalem the capital of Israel, which shatters the delusion of Palestinians that they should own it," Hagee said.

"Jerusalem is the future of the world. Not Washington; not Rome; not Paris, France; not Berlin—Jerusalem. Jerusalem is the shoreline of eternity ... Jerusalem is the city of God," Hagee said.

The pastor said that his organization is dedicated to stamping out anti-semitism.

"Anti-semitism is not a Jewish problem—it's everybody's problem … anti-semitism, in the Christian sense, is a sin. And as a sin, it damns the soul," Hagee told Breitbart.

Hagee compared Trump with President Harry Truman, who recognized the statehood of Israel. He said he told Trump that his name "will be remembered 1,000 years from that day, like Truman, as two presidents who did what others did not dare to do."

Trump will not attend the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, but will address the ceremony in a video, a U.S. official said Friday, Axios reported.
