MSNBC Guest: Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Is About ‘Pleasing the People Who Finance the GOP’
MSNBC Guest: Moving Embassy to Jerusalem Is About ‘Pleasing the People Who Finance the GOP’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
The Trump administration's decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem was about "pleasing the people who finance the GOP," an MSNBC guest said on Monday.
President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in a historic gesture last December, and the U.S. Embassy in Israel officially opened in Jerusalem on Monday on the 70th anniversary of Israel's independence.
The decision has led to mass protests and violence in the Gaza Strip, and journalist Bobby Ghosh said on MSNBC that the move was not part of any peace process. Any invocation of the word "peace" by Trump, he said, made many Arabs wince.
