Jerusalem city council member Aryeh King spoke to Arutz Sheva about the significance of President Trump's Jerusalem declaration last December, and what Israel must do at this critical juncture in history.

"Jerusalem's residents received a present from the United States of America, and especially [from] the President of the United States of America Donald Trump. As a Counselor of the Municipality of Jerusalem, I'm so delighted to a member of the city counsel that in our time, in a few months, the embassy from Tel Aviv will move right here, in the place behind me, already built. Today it's an American Consulate, and after May 14th, the day after Jerusalem Day, it will become the embassy of the United States, and this is in Jerusalem.

"This is not just a present for us, for me, for the government of Israel. It's a message, not just a present. It's a message, a very clear message from the President and from the Congress and from the Senate of the United States. All of them are telling us 'You are the sovereign of Jerusalem. Jerusalem is your capital.' So start behaving as a sovereign. Start building everywhere you want."
