"The letter to President Trump is full of love," the rabbi said. "We said to the President of the United States: Sir, you have realized the vision of the prophets that the honor of Jerusalem rises among the nations, like the other prophecies that come true in our generation - the immigration to Israel, the collapse of our enemies and our economic success. In this personal act, you have realized the vision of the prophets and you are a symbol and an example to others."
