Just as expected, the Palestinians ain’t too happy about the report that Trump is getting ready to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
Here’s what they said to Reuters:
JUST IN: U.S. declaration of Jerusalem as capital of Israel would be 'kiss of death' to two-state solution - Palestinian envoy pic.twitter.com/LUmG015Yyf— Reuters World (@ReutersWorld) December 4, 2017
This situation is a lot like North Korea – Trump hasn’t gotten very far in solving it, but it’s really not his fault and previous administrations have just passed the buck onto the next guy. Frankly I would be amazed if he did anything at all either way, given how indecisive he is, and how he wants everyone to love him.
Also worth noting, Trump shrunk back from saying he’d move our embassy to Jerusalem, but might recognize it as Israel’s capital as a sort of compromise.
