Any sane diplomat, national security and/or foreign policy expert will tell you this announcement is a DISASTER. We are alienating leaders from all over the world including key Arab and Muslim leaders. This man is taking us down a dark, spiral road and we need to stop him before it's too late. He is literally putting us at risk all over the world.
Let's be VERY CLEAR, as an American, I don't care what announcements he makes - he DOES NOT SPEAK for me. Jerusalem IS NOT the capital of Israel. It's not internationally recognized as such. This is NOT how this works. A foreign government doesn't just announce/confirm a capital for another country.
"Trump will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and begin the process of moving the US embassy, official says."
(CNN)President Donald Trump will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday and direct the State Department to begin the process to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, senior administration officials said.
The decision, which is already being cheered by the President's supporters and the Israeli government, is expected to roil the region, with US Arab allies warning Trump on Tuesday that it will undermine regional stability and stymie the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Trump will sign a waiver delaying the embassy move for another six months to comply with the law, as senior administration officials said it will take years for the move to be completed.
