Trump’s Is­rael move: Why?

The Dallas Morning News - - Nation & World -

Re: “Trump to move em­bassy in Is­rael — Re­lo­ca­tion to Jerusalem could in­ter­rupt peace process, Arab lead­ers warn,” Wed­nes­day news story.

What prompted Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to make this de­ci­sion? It wasn’t any pro­found thought process on his part. Be­ing stymied by Congress is driv­ing him nuts, and he feels he must strike out on his own re­gard­less of the con­se­quences. Thus, he looks around and dis­cov­ers that he has the author­ity to do some­thing the world and prior pres­i­dents had avoided be­cause of the great un­cer­tainty of this ac­tion. What does he know about the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of this act? Noth­ing. He doesn’t care. The only thing he cares about seems to be the ap­pear­ance of get­ting some­thing done, re­gard­less of the con­se­quences.

Or per­haps this is a gasp­ing ef­fort to di­vert at­ten­tion from the on­go­ing Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Pick your poi­son.
