  • TODAY DONALD TRUMP MADE GOOD ON ONE OF HIS OFF PROMISES

  • DURING HIS CAMPAIGN AND ANNOUNCEMENTS ABOUT THE

  • FUTURE OF OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL.

  • I HAVE DETERMINED THAT IT IS TIME TO OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZE

  • JERUSALEM AS THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.

  • WHILE PREVIOUS PRESIDENTS HAVE MADE THIS A MAJOR CAMPAIGN

  • PROMISE, THEY FAILED TO DELIVER.

  • TODAY I AM DELIVERING.

  • I JUDGE THIS COURSE OF ACTION TO BE IN THE BEST INTEREST OF

  • THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

  • AND THE PURSUIT OF PEACE OF ISRAEL AND THE PALESTINIANS.

  • SEEING THE VIDEO OF HIM BETWEEN TWO FLAGS

  • IS SURREAL.

  • HE IS DOING IT, HE IS DISGUSTED FOR A LONG TIME.

  • BACK IN THE 90S IT WAS OVERWHELMINGLY VOTED ON IN

  • THE SENATE BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED.

  • THEY WOULD PROMISE IT, AND THEY WOULD FAILED TO DELIVER.

  • BUT HE DOESN'T MENTION WHY.

  • YOU ARE RIGHT, ANYTIME YOU REMEMBER WHO DONALD TRUMP

  • ACTUALLY IS WHICH IS A REALITY HOST AND LEADER OF A THREE RING

  • CIRCUS ñ HE THOUGHT HE WAS FIRING TEL AVIV.

  • IT IS A VERY SERIOUS ISSUE.

  • THE REASON WHY THEY PROMISE IT AS IT PLAYS WELL WITH

  • CHRISTIAN EVANGELICALS IN THIS COUNTRY.

  • AND OTHERS AS WELL.

  • THE MAJORITY OF JEWISH AMERICANS IN AMERICA ARE 70% DEMOCRATS,

  • ONE OF THE STRONGEST BASES IN THE COUNTRY.

  • THE REASON THEY CHANGE THEIR MIND IS BECAUSE PEOPLE SAT

  • THEM DOWN AND TALKED ABOUT THE REALITY OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

  • THEY SAY WE COULD MOVE IT TO JERUSALEM BUT MUSLIMS,

  • CHRISTIANS, AND JEWS, ALL CONSIDER JERUSALEM THEIR

  • SPIRITUAL CAPITAL.

  • IN THE CASE OF THE PHYSICAL PEOPLE THAT ARE THERE

  • PALESTINIANS ARE IN EAST JERUSALEM AND THEY VIEW

  • THAT TO BE THERE CAPITAL.

  • IF WE TELL THE WHOLE MUSLIM WORLD THAT JERUSALEM ISN'T

  • YOURS ANYMORE, WE HAVE GIVEN IT TO ISRAEL, PEOPLE ARE GOING

  • TO BE ENRAGED.

  • EVEN TOP ALLIES LIKE THE KING OF JORDAN SAID THIS IS A

  • TERRIBLE IDEA.

  • SAUDI ARABIA, AND TURKEY IS SAYING THE SAME.

  • THE UK NOT A FAN OF IT.

  • CNN HAD A GRAPHIC OF HOW MANY COUNTRIES HAVE AN EMBASSY IN TEL

  • AVIV AND HOW MANY HAVE AN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM.

  • THERE WERE NONE IN JERUSALEM.

  • HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY OF HOW PARTS OF EASTERN

  • JERUSALEM WERE ORIGINALLY ACQUIRED BY ISRAEL.

  • THE CONSEQUENCES IN TERMS OF THE SETTLEMENTS.

  • HE SHOULD KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THAT SINCE JARED

  • KUSHNER HAD BEEN FUNDING SOME OF THOSE SETTLEMENTS.

  • IT IS PURELY BASED ON HIS BELIEF THAT THIS WILL PLAY WELL

  • AMONGST THE EVANGELICALS IN AMERICA WHO HAVE THIS CRAZY

  • RELIGIOUS BELIEF THAT WE NEED TO SET OFF AN APOCALYPSE IN

  • THAT PART OF THE WORLD.

  • THERE WILL BE NO RELIGIOUS APOCALYPSE, THERE COULD BE

  • ACTUAL VIOLENCE.

  • THIS BRINGS US A BIG STEP CLOSER TO THAT.

  • IF YOU ARE A RIGHT-WINGER AND THINK WHAT DO I CARE THE

  • PALESTINIANS ARE UPSET. THAT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE IGNORANT.

  • KING ABDULLAH IS A STRONG ALLY OF THE US AND HAS KEPT

  • JORDAN STABLE.

  • GIVEN THE WILD INSTABILITY OF THE MIDDLE EAST, AT LEAST

  • HE HAS THE COUNTRY SOMEWHAT UNDER CONTROL.

  • THE REASON HE IS UPSET IS NOT BECAUSE HE IS A MUSLIM ñ WHAT HE

  • IS SAYING IS NOW YOU'RE GOING TO DESTABILIZE MY COUNTRY AND WHEN

  • YOU DO THAT INSTEAD OF HAVING A SECULAR LEADER IN CHARGE, YOU

  • MIGHT HAVE MORE FUNDAMENTALISTS THAT RISE UP AND TAKE

  • JORDAN WHICH WOULD BE A TERRIBLE IDEA.

  • DEFINITELY.

  • THERE IS A PROXIMITY ISSUE AT STAKE THERE.

  • WHILE I BELIEVE HE IS DOING THIS TO FIRE UP HIS BASE AND WE

  • UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A MAJOR POLICY CHANGE FOR THE US AND HAS

  • CONSEQUENCES FOR THE UN CERTAINLY FOR THE FUTURE OF ANY

  • PEACE PROCESS.

  • HE IS GOING TO TRY CAREFULLY IN THE SPEECH.

  • LISTEN TO THIS SECOND SECTION OF THE SPEECH.

  • I ALSO WANT TO MAKE ONE POINTS VERY CLEAR.

  • THIS DECISION IS NOT INTENDED IN ANY WAY TO REFLECT A DEPARTURE

  • FROM OUR STRONG COMMITMENT TO FACILITATE A LASTING PEACE

  • AGREEMENT.

  • WE WANT AN AGREEMENT THAT IS A GREAT DEAL FOR THE ISRAELIS AND

  • A GREAT DEAL FOR THE PALESTINIANS.

  • WE ARE NOT TAKING A POSITION OF ANY FINAL STATUS ISSUES.

  • THEY ARE SAYING THIS DOESN'T REALLY REPRESENT ANYTHING,

  • BUT OF COURSE IT DOES.

  • HE IS JUST BASICALLY GIVING IT ñ FROM OUR POINT OF VIEW IS ONE OF

  • THE STRONGEST ARBITERS OF WHAT HAPPENS THERE IT IS FINALIZED.

  • OBVIOUSLY WE GIVE HUGE SUPPORT TO ISRAEL.

  • LASTER RE-SIGNED THE TEN-YEAR $38 BILLION ARMS DEAL WITH

  • ISRAEL WHICH WAS MORE THAN THE DECADE BEFORE.

  • BUT THIS IS ANOTHER SYMBOLIC MOVE ON TOP OF IT.

  • OF COURSE THEY ARE RIGHT WITH THE HYPOCRISY.

  • THE NUMBER ONE RECIPIENT OF US AID IS ISRAEL.

  • I READ THAT ISRAEL IS THE LARGEST CUMULATIVE

  • RECIPIENT OF US FOREIGN ASSISTANCE SINCE WORLD WAR II.

  • AT ONE POINT THEY DESPERATELY NEEDED IT, NOW THEY ARE THE

  • MEGA POWER IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

  • IT WOULD BE LIKE GIVING MONEY

  • TO OIL COMPANIES.

  • WHY ARE WE GIVING THE MONEY, IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

  • THEY HAVE E LEGAL SETTLEMENTS AND WE ARE FUNDING THEM.

  • THEY ARE NOT MOVING THE EMBASSY TOMORROW, IT WILL BE SIX

  • MONTHS FROM NOW BECAUSE IT IS A LOGISTICAL MESS.

  • IT BUYS TIME FOR SOMEONE, THE NEXT PRESIDENT TO BE ABLE TO

  • REVERSE THAT POLICY? I DON'T WANT POLITICIANS LYING TO YOU

  • AND SAYING I'M GOING TO MOVE THE EMBASSY AND THEY GO BACK ON

  • THEIR WORD.

  • THAT IS WHY THEY SHOULD NOT SAY THEY ARE GOING TO DO IT IN

  • THE FIRST PLACE.

  • TRUMKA 81%

  • OF THE WHITE EVANGELICAL VOTE, AND THIS IS HOW.

  • HE'S GOING TO CREATE A MESS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AS LONG AS

  • I GET THE VOTE.

  • SOME OF THOSE CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISTS ACTUALLY DO

  • WANT A WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

  • THAT IS PART OF ARMAGEDDON.

  • THAT IS THEIR END TIMES PHILOSOPHY.

  • TO THEM MOVING THE CAPITAL TO JERUSALEM IS A WIN WIN.

  • IF FULFILLS ONE PART OF THE PROPHECY AND IT IS MORE

  • LIKELY TO CREATE A GIANT WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT GETS

  • ALMOST ALL OF US KILLED.

  • THAT IS NOT THE BUG, THAT IS THE FEATURE.

  • THEY HAVE SET IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

  • OUT OF THE PROPHECY AS YOU RIP DOWN ONE OF THE MOSQUES IN

  • THAT AREA AND THAT LEADS TO A WAR WERE ALMOST EVERYONE ON

  • THE PLANET DIES.

  • THAT IS WHAT THESE FUNDAMENTALISTS ARE LOOKING

  • FORWARD TO.

  • AND I HEAR THE FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIMS ARE

  • THE PROBLEM, AND THEY AR.

  • BUT ALSO FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS. NOT ONLY IS IT

  • NONSENSE, IT HAS CONVINCED ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE

  • IN ANCIENT MYTHS THAT WE HAVE TO KILL EACH OTHER TO FIGHT

  • OVER THIS PIECE OF TERRITORY THAT IS NOT EVEN THAT

  • ATTRACTIVE TO BEGIN WITH.

  • IF YOU FOUGHT OVER LA OR HAWAII I WOULD GET IT.

  • O I GOT THIS PIECE OF DIRT IN THE MIDDLE OF A GODFORSAKEN

  • COUNTRY.

  • I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT JERUSALEM.

  • BUT I AM NOT THE ISSUE.

  • I WOULD SAY YOU BOTH GET HALF, WE ARE DONE WITH IT.

  • BUT YOU ARE GOING TO START HOLY WARS WITH THIS IDIOTIC IDEA

  • BECAUSE THEY DO CARE.

  • THE MUSLIMS, JEWS, AND CHRISTIANS CARE.

  • IT IS NOT JUST THE MUSLIMS, IT IS EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS SAYING

  • ARMAGEDDON IS WHAT WE PRAY FOR.
