True to his campaign promise and going against international opinion, Donald Trump did a really stupid thing -- he designated Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel and will initiate plans to eventually move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
Pundits are scratching their heads on why Trump would do such a provocative move now. They are all over the place, but I can put it down to three:
1) Christian evangelical votes and money
2) Shelden Adelesen money.
3) Obama was against it.
Trump said he did it because it was in America's best interests. He should have qualified that statement to say it was in his best interests in further solidifying his base of supporters. Shelden Adelsen alone should be worth several million in campaign donations.
Frankly I don't think Trump knows shit about the history and emotions around the delicate peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. He only looks at situations from the standpoint of his own selfish motives.
