CNN's Chris Cuomo contended on the 19 December 2016 edition of New Day that Trump's pick for ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, is "one of the most controversial choices the President-Elect has made for his Cabinet." Cuomo labeled Friedman "hardliner or "hardline" during a segment with former Ambassador Martin Indyk. He also pointed out the "very controversial territory" of the would-be diplomat supporting moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and oddly highlighted that "the Christians lay claim to Jerusalem."
