Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has backed US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Israel and the Palestinian state have been enmeshed in decades-old tussle over the city reverred by Jews, Christians and Muslims alike.

But in a landmark declaration on Wednesday, President Trump recognised Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, adding that the US State Department would commence the process of relocation of the US Embassy in Israel to the city, a declaration that has threatened to plunge the Middle East into crisis.

However, in a tweet on his verified Twitter account Thursday afternoon, Fani-Kayode praised Trump’s boldness.

He said: “With the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,it is obvious why God annointed @realDonaldTrump and chose him to lead America.If u want to know who the 45th President of the US really is read Isaiah 45.He is the biblical Cyrus and he came to establish God’s counsel.”
