According to the Times of Israel, “The offices of two other Jewish Democratic lawmakers — Reps. Ted Deutch of Florida and Nita Lowey of New York — said they were invited but that the event fell on a ‘district day’ and they were not in Washington to attend the affair.
At the D.C. event, which saw over 1,000 attendees, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, reportedly praised President Donald Trump for the embassy move saying it was a “large leap for truth.”
“I’m not disappointed, but I’m surprised, because support for it has been broadly bipartisan,” Lieberman told Breitbart News.
According to the Times of Israel, only two Democrats pledged full support for President Trump’s decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv; namely Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY).
“As with everything else Donald Trump does, most Democrats saw this as an extremely provocative and reckless intervention in Middle East politics,” a Jewish Democratic legislator who wished to remain anonymous told the publication about the embassy move.
