U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told CBS News’ John Dickerson on Sunday that President Trump was the only president who had the “courage” to deliver on his promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“This is a move the American people will have asked for for 22 years,” Haley said, pointing out that Congress has repeatedly asked presidents to move the embassy.

“Every presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat, has all said that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel and the embassy should be moved,” she continued. “President Trump’s the only one that had the courage to actually do that.”

Given that Jerusalem is the center of Israeli political life, “it makes sense for our embassy to be there,” she said.

Trump directed his State Department to begin the process of moving the embassy to Jerusalem last week.
