President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Wednesday, breaking with decades of U.S. policy and enraging the Palestinians. Legal experts, Israeli leaders and pro-Israel organizations noted that Jerusalem has long been the capital and that Trump’s recognition is a simple acknowledgement of reality.

“I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,” Trump said. “I’ve judged this course of action to be in the best interest of the United States of America and the pursuit of peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”
