Gillibrand’s Silence on the Jerusalem Embassy Highlights Her Complicated Past with Israel Policy
Earlier this month, President Trump moved the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a move that affirmed the administration’s view that Jerusalem is the rightful capital of Israel.
The controversial move spurred quick and diverse responses from national Democrats and 2020 presidential hopefuls. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT), both considered potential progressive candidates for the Democratic nomination in 2020, were quick to make statements about the resulting violence in the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) has remained notably silent on the issue. To read why and learn how it could impact her chances to win the Democrats’ nomination in 2020, become an AR Intel Insider today!
