President-elect Joe Biden will not reverse Donald Trump's landmark decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and maintain the U.S. embassy there, secretary of state-designate Antony Blinken said Tuesday.
Asked by Senator Ted Cruz at a confirmation hearing if the United States would continue Trump's policies on both points, Blinken said without hesitation, "Yes and yes."
