Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells CBN News it is very possible that President Trump is a modern-day Esther poised to defend Israel and save the Jewish people.
CBN's Chief Political Analyst David Brody and Middle East Bureau Chief Chris Mitchell sat down with Pompeo for an exclusive interview during his trip to Jerusalem.
The interview touched on politics, policy and spirituality. Pompeo is a strong Christian who experienced a refreshing time in the Holy Land. He had a particularly impactful experience at the Western Wall.
"So, I've been there before, but this was incredibly special. To be there with the Israeli prime minister and ambassador from the United States to Israel was really an important moment. It was special for me as a Christian. It was special I think to show the commitment the United States has to this democracy, this Jewish nation of Israel," said Pompeo.
President Trump showed that strong commitment again by announcing that it's time for the U.S. to fully recognize Israel's sovereignty over the disputed Golan Heights.
The announcement was music to the ears of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"He did it again. First, he recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and moved the embassy here. Then he pulled out of the disastrous Iran treaty and reimposed sanctions. But now he did something of equal historic importance: he recognized Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights," Netanyahu told reporters at a press conference.
