President Donald Trump heard chants of "four more years" from members of the Republican Jewish Coalition after detailing his decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Trump said that "unlike other presidents, I keep my promises" and called the embassy move an example of a "historic action that had been decades in waiting."

As he mentioned the embassy decision, he called out two members of the audience at his speech in Las Vegas — major GOP donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson.

Trump said he thinks "that is the most important thing I think that's ever happened in their life. They love Israel."

Trump thanked members of the Republican Jewish Coalition for backing him in 2016 and he says they have an important role to play in his re-election campaign in 2020.

Trump told members of the group that he's grateful for "your incredible support and your outstanding commitment to our country to our safety and to electing more Republicans."

The president said, "we need more Republicans. Let's go, so we can win everything.

"I know that the Republican Jewish Coalition will help lead our party to another historic victory."

Trump earlier met privately with a major GOP donor, casino magnate Sheldon Adelson. Adelson is chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. He and his wife, Miriam, received a standing ovation when they entered the ballroom. Trump praised Adelson from the stage.

Adelson's company revealed earlier this year that Adelson is receiving treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

The Adelsons gave President Donald Trump's campaign $30 million in 2016. They followed that by contributing $100 million to the Republican Party for the 2018 midterm elections.

In November, Trump recognized Miriam Adelson with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor the nation reserves for a civilian. She's a doctor and philanthropist.
