Ambassador to Israel David M. Friedman told Breitbart News on Tuesday in an exclusive interview that President Donald Trump had been “excited” about moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Friedman also said that he felt a sense of pride in his own role in securing the embassy move — a role that is commemorated in stone on the commemorative plaques dedicating the opening of the facility.
“You say I was fighting to get this done,” he told Breitbart News.
