When Donald Trump ran for office, he made many promises to the American people. Most critics claimed they were all impossible.
But after just a year and a half, he’s proving them wrong.
The biggest “impossible” promise was just winning the election. Every left-wing pundit claimed Trump could never beat Hillary Clinton. He humiliated them and Clinton, by destroying her in an electoral landslide.
Since entering office, Trump has baffled and infuriated his rivals by making good on one promise after another. He slashed Obama’s tyrannical regulations, spurring the economy to new heights. He yanked the teeth out of Obamacare, making it all but useless. Despite intense resistance, he passed historic tax cuts that have blown Americans away.
But perhaps his international victories dwarf them all. ISIS has been crushed in Iraq and Syria. North Korea is promising to make peace with the U.S. and end their nuclear program.
And today, Trump fulfilled a promise no president was brave enough to do.
The ceremony to inaugurate the United States’ controversial embassy in Jerusalem began on Monday after deadly clashes along the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel earlier in the day.
The ceremony moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem began with the US national anthem.
US ambassador to Israel David Friedman then spoke and President Donald Trump was given a standing ovation when he mentioned him.
US Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan led the Washington delegation at the inauguration that also included Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House aides, as well as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Some 800 guests were attending the ceremony.
Congress voted to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital way back in 1985. That was renewed more recently by every member of the Senate. Yet no president had the guts to move the U.S. embassy there. Why? Perhaps they were cowards.
Yes, there’s conflict between Israel and Palestine. That has been going on for hundreds of years. Why should that get in the way of our relationship with Israel? They are one of our closest and most important allies. Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East. Shouldn’t we do everything we can to support them?
Yet for over thirty years our leaders have neglected to make good on this promise. Bush, despite his avid support for Israel, could not do it. We all know why Obama didn’t. He was not, what you call, a friend of Israel. (Had it been Iran, he would have moved the embassy in a heartbeat.)
Only Trump, who the Left calls a monster, was willing to put his money where his mouth was. Even people within his own cabinet were worried about the move. He wasn’t. During his campaign, he promised to move our embassy to Jerusalem. Earlier this year, he made the official announcement.
We all saw how the left reacted. Despite their own votes, they did not want our embassy moved. Why? Probably because it was Trump who was doing it. They can’t admit he is making good on his promises. Democrats can’t accept the fact that Trump is one of the most impactful presidents in our nation’s history.
All over the world, he is celebrated and respected. You better believe the Israeli’s love him. So, why can’t liberals in America show him the same respect? Are the less patriotic than people in other countries?
I think you know that answer.
