The only certainty at this point is Republicans will deny any connection between this latest nincompoopery by Der Trumper and any uptick in violence in the Mideast. Instead they will blame Iran and find a way to extend jrbush's needless never-ending war that is SOOO very profitable for many of their donors.


And Fox will tell its audience it's all Obama's fault, and they'll believe it.

Told by world leaders that this could escalate tensions and war in the Middle East, this idiot, this sexual predator and liar in chief, went ahead with his ridiculous campaign promise. No glory to be found here—only more stupidity. 

 trump and his supporters seem to be a never ending well of ridiculous,  dangerous, and destructive nonsensical agendas. 

Since this ridiculousness will take a few years to implement, one can only hope that when a real president takes office many of trump's stupid stupid decisions will be reversed.


Gee, I miss having a real president!

'Jerusalem IS Israel's capital'

Message 204 of 204

'Jerusalem IS Israel's capital': I will move our embassy there AND make peace with the Palestinians says Trump as he defies the world's warning he will set the Middle East on fire with dramatic change of policy


  • President Trump announced he's recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital city, and starting the process of moving the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv


  • 'Today we finally acknowledge the obvious, that Jerusalem is Israel's capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality,' he said


  • 'Many presidents have said they want to do something, and they didn't do it; whether it's through courage or they change their mind I can't tell you,' he said during a cabinet meeting before his world-shaking speech


  • Palestinians said it would be 'a kiss of death to the two-state solution' and Trump is 'declaring war in the Middle East'


  • The terror group Hamas said Trump has opened 'the gates of hell' 


  • Pope Francis said he was 'profoundly concerned' and appealed that 'everyone respects the status quo of the city' 


  • China, which has good ties with Israel and the Palestinians, expressed concerns over 'possible aggravation of regional tensions'


  • Iran's supreme leader said Trump's new stance represented 'incompetence and failure'; Russia expressed concern about a 'possible deterioration' there


  • Moving the embassy to Jerusalem will unfold over 'years,' a senior White House official said; 'It won't be immediate, it won't be months, it won't be quick'



President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that America formally recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital city, changing decades of U.S. policy in a brief afternoon speech and casting the move as a bid to preserve, not derail, aspirations for regional peace.


Appearing in the White House's Diplomatic Reception Room against an elaborate backdrop of Christmas decorations, He also said the United States embassy in Israel would, over time, be moved there from Tel Aviv.


Israel is the only country where the United States has an embassy in a city that the host nation does not consider its capital.


'I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel,' Trump said. 'While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today I am delivering.'


'When I came into office I promised to look at the world's challenges with open eyes and very fresh thinking,' he said, leaning heavily on a mid-1990s federal law that demanded the embassy's relocation.


'We have declined to acknowledge any Israeli capital – at all,' Trump added. 'But today we finally acknowledge the obvious, that Jerusalem is Israel's capital. This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality.'


'It is also the right thing to do. It is something that has to be done.'
