Video: Trump Mocks Obama, Clinton, Bush For Failing on Jerusalem Promise

President Trump is basking in the glow of a political victory that saw him officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, along with moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to the capital city.

The move had bipartisan support, despite what the media has been trying to tell you the last couple of days. Former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all declared in one form or another that Jerusalem must be considered the Israeli capital.

But it was Trump that actually committed to the move.

“Congress recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 1995 in a bill President Clinton declined to veto,” the Wall Street Journal stated in a recent op-ed. “Other Presidents have agreed in principle, and even campaigned on it … The difference is that Mr. Trump apparently meant what he said as a candidate.”

Indeed he did, and now the President has taken to Twitter to mock those former presidents who did not mean what they said.

Even CNN relented and ran a piece titled, ‘Donald Trump – Keeper of Promises.’

“A politician who actually does what he told voters he would do seems almost unfathomable in Washington, a town of broken promises,” writes Stephen Collinson. Recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is “the latest instance of the President obstinately honoring the bumper-sticker vows he made to his ultra-loyal supporters.”

Keeping campaign promises – the same promises the American people wanted when they voted – is now parsed with the negative connotation of ‘obstinate,’ because TRUMP!

“Trump has also been as good as his word in other areas,” Collinson adds. “As promised, he has moved to renegotiate NAFTA, pulled out of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, walked out of the Paris climate accord, targeted the Iran nuclear deal and introduced a travel ban for residents of some majority Muslim nations, while adopting other radical immigration policies.”

They misspelled ‘reasonable’ immigration policies.

Not to mention all the economic successes Trump promised, which have come to fruition early on in his first term.

Just one day after making his announcement on Jerusalem, President Trump hosted a Hanukkah celebration at the White House.

“Right now I’m thinking about what’s going on and the love that’s all over Israel and all about Jerusalem,” Trump said.

Too bad the presidents that came before him did not.
