On Monday morning, the United States opened their new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem. At the ceremony, Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, addressed those in attendance. In response, critics of the administration decided to offer their thoughts.

Kushner in Jerusalem

When Donald Trump was running for president during the 2016 election, he made several promises that many wondered if he would ever follow through on.

While Trump has been unable to make many of those promises a reality, one that has come true is moving the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The decision resulted in criticism from those who worried that it could make finding a peace agreement between Israel and Palestine even more difficult. While the president was not in attendance during the dedication ceremony, he was represented by his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

At the ceremony in Jerusalem, Jared Kushner spoke to the crowd, saying, "When there is peace in this region, we will look back upon this day and remember that the journey to peace started with a strong America, recognizing the truth." "I believe peace is within reach if we dare to believe that the future can be different from the past," he added.

Kushner's speech lasted for nearly 10 minutes, but those who oppose the administration were not impressed and decided to sound off in the return.

Twitter reacts

After Jared Kushner gave his remarks in Jerusalem, social media critics wasted no time hitting back. "I just turned on my television to the unfortunate sight of Jared Kushner speaking, in Jerusalem, to an audience of MAGA hat wearing Cultists," one tweet read.

"Jared looks like he’s not getting any sleep anymore," Adam Parkhomenko wrote.

"Jared and Ivanka partying it up in Jerusalem while Israeli forces massacre Palestinians in Gaza is a level of depravity you can only find in the Trump and Netanyahu administrations," Eugene Gu tweeted out. "Why are your kids leading this? How are they qualified?" a Twitter user wondered.

"People who told us Obama lacked experience are quite pleased that Jared Kushner is setting policy," comedian John Fugelsang posted to Twitter.

"I missed the part where I voted for Jared Kushner, or he had the background to be the voice of the United States, or heck, even security clearance," Amy Sisking tweet out. "Trump is the most despicable human being to ever hold the office of POTUS," Bishop Talbert Swan wrote.
