Tel Aviv, presently the host city of the U.S. Embassy in Israel, issued an amusing tweet Wednesday in reaction to President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital and his promise to begin the process to relocate diplomatic facilities there in the near future.

“Congratulations #Jerusalem!” tweeted @TelAviv, the official English-language Twitter account for the city. An accompanying animated .gif shows actress Jennifer Aniston from her iconic role as Rachel from the 1990s sitcom “Friends,” with a caption reading, “I’m so happy and not at all jealous.”

While the U.S. and a few other countries do retain consulates in Jerusalem, no major world power locates its embassy there, with most of them located in Tel Aviv, about 40 miles west of Jerusalem.
