President Trump received huge applause all night during his State of the Union address, but one moment in particular lit up the room — when he brought up how he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

WATCH:

“Last month I also took an action endorsed unanimously by the U.S. Senate, just months before. I recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”

“Shortly afterwards, dozens of countries voted in the United Nations general assembly against America’s sovereign right to make this decision. In 2016, American taxpayers generously sent those same countries more than $20 billion in aid.” (RELATED: Nancy Pelosi’s Face During Trump’s Speech Is Amazing [VIDEO])

“That is why, tonight, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to help ensure American foreign assistance dollars always serve American interests and only go to friends of America, not enemies.” (RELATED: Trump Honors The Flag: ‘We Proudly Stand For The National Anthem’ [VIDEO])
