Gotta admit it's nice seein' a president with nuts who isn't afraid to stand up for what's right despite the pc police throwing tantrums and hissy-fits.

Trump calls decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital a high point of his presidency

Quote:
According to the Associated Press, President Donald Trump told reporters Friday at the Israel Hayom, a pro-Netanyahu daily newspaper, that he considers his decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel the most memorable event of his presidency.

“I think Jerusalem was a very big point,” he said. “And I think it was a very important point. The capital, having Jerusalem be your great capital, was a very important thing to a lot of people.”

Trump’s decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem before the end of 2019 has continued to draw ire across the Muslim world, including a number of violent protests.

In January, Trump threatened to cut funds to Palestine if Palestinians continue to refuse peace talks with Israel. The funds were for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley advised U.S. officials to stall the funds until Palestinians resumed peace talks with Israel, noting that the U.S. is the largest donor to the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, which “focuses on providing health care, education and social services to Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.”

The U.S. government believes severing cash flow to the agency would put pressure on the Palestinian Authority to return to the negotiating table for a peace deal with Israel and to crack down on Palestinian militants.

Doesn't really mean anything until the embassy is actually moved to Jerusalem and our ambassadors are stationed there.
