MSNBC Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel reported on Monday that Israelis were chanting President Trump’s name to celebrate the opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem on Monday.

Compared with protests on the Palestinian side of the border, “the mood couldn’t be [more] different inside” the embassy celebrations, Engel told MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson.

The crowd was very excited to see the president’s address: “There were standing ovations here when President Trump was mentioned – his name was mentioned several times. He also gave a video address. People started jumping to their feet. They shouted, ‘Trump, Trump, Trump!'” the MSNBC correspondent reported.

The network ran images of the Palestinian protests against Trump’s decision during Engel’s report.
