Vice President-elect Mike Pence explains why he and Donald Trump are strong supporters of Israel and of Jerusalem, its eternal, undivided capital.

In a live video message to American-Israelis attending a Republican rally in Jerusalem in October, ahead of the U.S. national election, Vice President-elect Mike Pence – on behalf of himself and Donald Trump, then presidential candidate – declared unequivocal support for Israel and for Jerusalem, “the eternal, undivided capital of the Jewish people and the Jewish state.”

Pence responded to an oft-asked question: Why do you support Israel?

He explained many reasons for his stand, not least because Israel is America’s greatest ally in the world.
