This Year in Jerusalem

At long last, the United States has learned the most elementary geography lesson: the capital of Israel is Jerusalem. Sixty-nine years after the creation of the modern state of Israel and twenty-two years after the US Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act, President Trump has finally recognized this fact and brought the US into compliance with her own law.

I am still not a Trump supporter and this does not change my mind about all the reasons I didn't vote for him. But on the Pro vs Con ledger of the Trump presidency, this is a very solid Pro.
