Newt Gingrich said he would move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem on his first day in office. "Israel has every right as a sovereign, free nation to choose its own capital and we should respect that choice," the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives said Sunday in an address to the Republican Jewish Coalition. "As President, on my first day in office, I would issue an executive order directing the U.S. embassy in Israel to be moved to Jerusalem as provided for in the legislation I introduced in 1995."
