Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, said during his speech at the opening ceremony of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, that Israel is the guardian of Jerusalem and everything in it.

“We have proven to the world that Washington can be trusted following the decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem,” Kushner added, stressing that the United States is ready to support peace agreements in every way.
