Gohmert: Embassy Move to Jerusalem 'A Great Blessing For America'

By    |   Monday, 14 May 2018 02:08 PM

Rep. Louie Gohmert lavishly praised President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, telling Fox Business on Monday that it was the historically right thing to do.

Further, the Texas Republican also said the move would "end up being a such great blessing for America" as well.

Gohmert was asked if the move would harm the peace process, as some critics have claimed.

"There is nothing we can do that would be worse for the peace process than what the Obama administration did. They stabbed Israel in the back, repeatedly betrayed them, did everything they could to keep Israel from protecting itself from the Iranian nuclear threat."

Gohmert also said that the U.S. should learn from the way Israel protects itself. Acknowledging the mass protests from Palestinians in Gaza, the congressman said that Israel “has a wall and fence, and they will be protected, and they know how to defend themselves and we ought to take notice."

When asked if he thought more countries would follow the lead of the U.S, regarding moving the embassy to Jerusalem, Gohmert said “it will take a little time for people to follow the leader, but this was a true leadership move."

He insisted, however, that "you're going to see more as time goes on, because they're going to realize, you know what, we want to be as good of friends because of all the Israeli technology, all the things they're developing in Israel, we need that.

"Maybe we better recognize their capital too. And I'm thrilled that it's the United States giving the impetus to other countries to go ahead and recognize what's been true for 3,000 years."
