Recognizing Jerusalem was Trump's biggest moment

In this interview Israel Hayom conducted with the POTUS, Donald Trump says recognizing Jerusalem was one of the biggest, best moments for him:
Q: What was the highlight of your first year, what was the highest point?

"I think Jerusalem was a very big point. And I think it was a very important point. The capital, having Jerusalem be your great capital was a very important thing to a lot of people. I have been thanked and in some cases not thanked, to be 100% honest about it. But it was a very important pledge that I made and I fulfilled my pledge."

Q: I think the entire nation of Israel says one big thank you, sir. Was the decision on Jerusalem one of your goals for your first year in office?

"That's right. I said that I would like to be able to do it in the first year. I can understand why many other presidents bailed on their promise, because tremendous pressure was put on them not to do it. The other presidents, all of them have failed in the promise even though they made it as a campaign promise but I understand it because I will tell you, the lobbying against it was tremendous."
However, I would not think it understandable why previous presidents and administrations wouldn't do what Trump showed the courage to do. They were not altruistic (Clinton, Bush and Obama), and by failing to recognize Jerusalem's validity, they only helped prolong both anti-semitism and anti-Americanism around the world. It's time to change that for real now.

That said, it's vital to remember that there's no chance the PLO will ever truly recognize Israel, and that's a reality we all have to face.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
