Donald Trump’s Recognition Of Jerusalem As The Capital Of Israel Will Shake The Middle East To The Core

This is one of the most historic things to happen in the Middle East in decades. Just a few days ago I reported that Donald Trump would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel “in December”, and now we are being told that Trump will make this announcement at eastern time .
Administration officials are stressing that this move is a “recognition of reality”, because of course the seat of the Israeli government has been in the holy city for a very long time. But without a doubt this announcement will shake the Middle East to the core, because Israel’s neighbors are extremely displeased that Trump is doing this.
According to the Jerusalem Post, President Trump phoned leaders all over the Middle East to inform them about what would happen …
The recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will be immediate, but the U.S. embassy will probably not be moved for six months. The following comes from CNN…
By not moving the embassy immediately, administration officials are hoping that this will pacify Israel’s neighbors a little bit.
The three days stretching from the Jerusalem Post… to are being called “three days of rage”, and it is very likely that we will see widespread violence. The following comes from
Some U.S. officials had urged Trump not to make this sort of a move, but it is the right thing to do. U.S. policy should never be dictated by threats of violence, and I greatly applaud President Trump for refusing to be intimidated.
And according to CBS News, U.S. government officials are being ordered to stay away from the Old City and the West Bank for now…
It takes a lot of courage to do the right thing even though you know that the other side may resort to violence.

It should upset you that virtually everything stocking the shelves of our major retailers seems to have been made somewhere else. As a nation, we are consuming far more wealth than we are producing, and that is a recipe for national economic suicide. This week we learned that imports from China hit an all-time record high in October, and that was one of the primary reasons why our trade deficit hit a staggering 48.7 billion dollars during that month. Year after year we buy far more stuff from the rest of the world than they buy from us, and this is systematically impoverishing us.
Let me put this another way. The amount of money that leaves our country each month is far greater than the amount of money that comes into it. When you grasp this concept, it becomes easy to understand why major exporting nations such as China have become so wealthy, and why we are drowning in debt.
Sadly, most Americans don’t understand the trade deficit, and so they don’t understand how important news like this really is. The following comes from Bloomberg…
Since China joined the WTO in 2001, the United States has lost more than 70,000 manufacturing facilities and millions of good paying manufacturing jobs. Formerly great manufacturing cities such as Detroit now resemble war zones, but until Donald Trump came along nobody seemed to really care very much about what was happening.
President Trump is precisely correct when he says that our trade agreements are not fair to American workers and American businesses. We will always need to trade with the rest of the world, but we need to do so in a way that is fair for both sides. As a member of Congress, I will fight tirelessly for American workers, and if you believe in what I am trying to do I hope that you will join the team.
