One Key Reason Why Trump Is a Truly Great American President
Trump noted that denying Israel the right that every nation had, to determine its own capital, was a challenge to its very status as an independent nation: "Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital. Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace."
Enraged, Mahmoud Abbas severed all diplomatic contact between the
Palestinian Authority and the United States. But unlike his predecessors, Trump
was not intimidated, and moved swiftly to make the embassy move a reality: the
new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem opened on May 14, 2018, the seventieth
anniversary of Israel's independence. If future historians are just judges,
they will mark that as the day the U.S. stopped submitting to bullying and
began moving toward a more realistic foreign policy.
