Only 36% pf Americans support US President Donald Trump’s decision to move US embassy for Tell Avivi to Al-Quds (Jerusalem) as shown by a recent CNN poll.
“Americans are divided over Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel (44% approve, 45% disapprove) and 49% say the U.S. embassy there should not be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, while fewer, 36%, support the move,” CNNA reported on Friday.
Views on both of these questions are divided along party lines, the American network said.
“Among Republicans, 79% approve of Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and 66% favor moving the embassy there. Among Democrats, however, 71% take the opposite position on each question.”
The United Nations voted overwhelmingly to condemn the U.S. decision on Thursday, as US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley defended the decision, saying “That is what the American people want us to do and it is the right thing to do,” but the poll findings suggest otherwise.
