Report: Ron DeSantis tours Jerusalem embassy sites

U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis was far away from his Northeast Florida district this weekend; the Jerusalem Post reports that the Republican Congressman was in town, confidently scouting potential sites for a United States embassy.

DeSantis, chairman of the House Subcommittee on National Security, told Israeli media that he wanted to “come out and get some knowledge about where this thing will actually be.”

DeSantis also predicted that President Donald Trump “will announce that the embassy will be moving,” a move he said would project strength, and one that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu backed, even as King Abdullah II of Jordan and a Fatah leader predicted negative consequences.

The congressman scouted four sites, and the Post asserts that one site, which currently houses the American Citizens Service Union, would be the most ideal of the options.
