The U.S. Presidential Delegation arrived in Israel on Sunday afternoon ahead of the opening of the country's embassy in Jerusalem, scheduled for Monday.

Ambassador David Friedman, along with two embassy workers, greeted the delegation, which consisted of President Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan.

Several other American politicians will be attending the ceremony, but are arriving separately. Senators Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Don Heller and Mike Lee are expected to attend. Former senator Joe Lieberman is in Israel as well for the event.
