Trump, like many of his predecessors, made moving the embassy to Jerusalem a campaign pledge. But unlike past Presidents, Trump is taking action to keep his promise. Trump has recognized the fact that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and his move is an act of defiance to both Islamists and the liberal mainstream media.
Outlets like NBC, CNN, and the Guardian claimed Trump's decision will shut down peace talks, start wars, and plunge the Middle East into "fire with no end". But the peace talks have proven to be fruitless, and Arab leaders appear less outraged than the left-wing media.
Trump is keeping a pledge he made to the American people, proving he's a great friend of Israel, and showing Arab dictators he's not weak like Obama.
