Reasons Why Trump's Visit To Jerusalem Make Christians Happy

President Trump's decision to travel to Israel on his first foreign trip as the President of the United States has been praised by many on social media.

President Trump set a new record as he became the first United States sitting President to visit the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Following the historical visit, let us take a quick look at the 5 reasons why Trump's Visit to Jerusalem makes Christians happy:

He talked about the Temple


With Trump's comment about the Temple, many believed he will see to the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

He supported Jewish ties to Jerusalem

Jerusalem is considered a holy city in Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

If you take a look at the history of Jerusalem and how things have turned out to be in recent years, you will understand why the Christians are happy that one of the most powerful men on earth supported the Jewish ties to Jerusalem.

Israelis and Palestinians both claim Jerusalem as their capital, as the State of Israel maintains its primary governmental institutions there while the State of Palestine ultimately foresees the city as its seat of power; however, neither claim is widely recognized internationally.

During Jerusalem long history, it has been destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times.

The part of Jerusalem called the City of David was settled in the 4th millennium BCE. In 1538, walls were built around Jerusalem under Suleiman the Magnificent. Today those walls define the Old City, which has been traditionally divided into four quarters—known since the early 19th century as the Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Quarters.

Today, the status of Jerusalem remains one of the core issues in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. You understand why the Christians are happy now? I think so, Yes.

Finally, he said:
"I stand in awe of the accomplishments of the Jewish People, and I make this promise to you: My Administration will always stand with Israel."
