President Trump tweeted Thursday that “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a number of American politicians have tweeted their support in response to the President:
At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Thank you President Trump! @realDonaldTrump

Once again the President delivers on his promise to stand with our ally Israel. America should absolutely recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and support their right to defend themselves in the region. Bravo @realDonaldTrump.

President Trump’s decision to recognize the Golan as part of Israel is strategically wise and overall awesome.
Well done, Mr. President!

I fully agree with President @realdonaldtrump. It is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty in the Golan Heights, an issue I have been advocating for since my time in the U.S. Congress. #ThrowbackThursdayhttps://t.co/tBN7dtnL5q

This represents a continuation of the Trump administration’s strong support for the nation of Israel.
Last year the Trump administration took the historic step of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish state.
