Not long after liberals hyperventilated over President Donald Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city, the president released footage fully exposing their hypocrisy.
Trump made history Wednesday by announcing that the U.S. would be moving its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something former president’s only talked about doing but never had the guts to actually do.
Following criticism from leftists who said Trump made a reckless decision, the president uploaded a video compilation to his Twitter account showing former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama also promising to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“Jerusalem is still the capital of Israel and must remain an undivided city accessible to all,” Clinton said in 1992.
“As soon as I take office, I will begin the process of moving the United States ambassador to the city Israel has chosen as its capital,” Bush said in 2000.
In 2008, Obama echoed a similar tune saying, “I continue to say that Jerusalem will be the capital of Israel. And I have said that before and I will say it again.”
The video then shows Trump speaking at The American Israel Public Affairs Committee in 2016, where he promised to “move the American embassy to the eternal capital of the Jewish people — Jerusalem.”
The video ends with a clip from Trump’s speech in the Oval Office, where he said the move “is a long overdue step to advance the peace process and to work towards a lasting agreement.”

This video clip perfectly encapsulates the hypocrisy from the left. Trump actually honored his major campaign promise — which three former presidents also said they would do — and yet Trump is the one excoriated by the media.
It’s pathetic, but thankfully Trump is exposing the left’s hypocrisy on this issue and proving that he was the only president brave enough to make this decision.
Moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may take a few years, but it shows that Trump is taking steps to bolster the United States’ already strong relationship with the Jewish state.
Israel has learned that it now has a true friend in the White House, and this historic move by Trump solidifies Israel’s position as owner and ruler of the holy city.
Democrats are siding with the terrorist-supporting Palestinians because they are angry that Trump actually had the guts to do what former presidents before him never could.
