Over one year ago today, President Trump followed through on his campaign promise to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Bikers for Trump, a grassroots political organization that arranges trips to rallies in support of the president, celebrated the anniversary last week by taking a trip to Israel "to reinforce Trump's commitment to the Jewish people." The group posed by the new embassy and met with many thankful Israelis.

At one point on the trip, the bikers joined in song with Zion Riders MC.
Bikers for Trump Founder Chris Cox explained why the group made the flight.
“I went to Israel to reinforce President Trump’s commitment to Israel and celebrate the one year anniversary of the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem," Cox explained. "I learned very fast of Israel’s overwhelmingly support of Donald Trump. In my efforts to unite Israeli bikers to show support for our President should he return to Israel, I started the Israeli Bikers For Trump page. I issued a call to action, asking that Israeli people to call their friends and family in the U.S. and urged them to vote for leadership that supports Israel, to Jexit the Democratic Party and register Republican.”
Since moving the Israeli embassy, Trump has also formally recognized Israel's sovereignty over the disputed territory of the Golan Heights.
Cox founded Bikers for Trump in 2015, when Trump's political career was still in its infant stages.
"We are patriotic bikers and citizens whose sole purpose is to help re-elect President Donald Trump and pro-Trump candidates in 2020," the group explains on their website.
