Trump Recognizing Jerusalem As True Israel’s Capital: A Step Forward

President Donald Trump will make a speech at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday in which he is expected to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city.

His decision, not yet even formally declared, is reportedly already having consequences and moving other nations to follow America’s lead in recognizing Israel’s declared capital.

Recognizing Jerusalem would be in accordance with a 1995 law signed by President Bill Clinton that formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and mandated that the embassy be relocated there no later than 1999. However, the law allows the president to issue a waiver every six months to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv if the president deems it necessary to protect national security interests.

Each president since Clinton has signed the waiver every six months, including President Trump six months ago. Now, Trump is expected to end this long-standing policy and follow the law.

  1. The funny thing is, the law was signed by then president, William Jefferson Clinton! Now the liberals, including the RINO’s aka Whinos are up in arms. I say “Good for President Trump!”

  2. No excuse for the delay. The reasoning they gave was bogus. The muslims played the presidents since then, OR they were just using it as an excuse while pretending to want the move.
    That is what Feinstein was doing. She voted for the move in 1995 when she was sure that Clinton would not move it. She got to claim she was for it. LOL LIAR.

  3. Long overdue by prior no action Estd Presidents.
    Shake up the World Estd system, Keep Movin on.
    Now to shake up the DC Estd Narrow minds.
