As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Trump Vows to Move Embassy to Jerusalem, but, Like, Not Right Now

A promise delayed is a promise not kept. From the White House:

While President Donald J. Trump signed the waiver under the Jerusalem Embassy Act and delayed moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, no one should consider this step to be in any way a retreat from the President’s strong support for Israel and for the United States-Israel alliance.  President Trump made this decision to maximize the chances of successfully negotiating a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, fulfilling his solemn obligation to defend America’s national security interests.  But, as he has repeatedly stated his intention to move the embassy, the question is not if that move happens, but only when.

Sure give the Palestinians this concession. They’ll pocket it and ask for more, and there will still be no peace deal.

  1. I get it. Let’s wait and see how the Arabs honor their intentions to fight terrorism first.
    The big move wouldn’t aid anyone or make anyone’s life safer in the area.
    Let’s talk about Obamacare, job losses, illegal drugs first. Moving a foreign embassy won’t make America safer, more productive, or help anyone here.

    I do not think the Embassy will ever be moved. And if ME action has to wait on peace in the ME between Israel and the Palis it’s going to be a long wait.

    This is like McConnell waving the white flag and caving to the Dems.

    This is becoming an irritating trait of President Trump’s. The other is the “teaser”. The Paris Accords are a good example.

    I get it. I understand why he does it. I don’t like it.

    • Geoff,I shared your sentiment. But the President came through in spades on the Paris Accords and spoke directly to the American people about it.

      I thought it was brilliant.

  3. I heard Schumer was Jewish for the day and is upset that the embassy will not be moving.

    If and when it does, remember to check back with Chuck.
