The screw-up in chief, again makes the USA's standing in the world lower. This will certainly not lead to peace in the area.

Some observations: Was he drunk? Drugged? Sounded like he was. Slurring his speech. Either he was drunk or drugged, or he was having a mild stroke, or his dentures didn't fit right.
As far as hurting the Middle East peace process, my question to that is, what process?

I thought he was having a stroke. He doesn't drink, but his Twitter outbursts certainly sound like they are coming from someone using meth or smoking crack. He did keep his promise on this one, but he probably just ignited another war in the middle east between Israel and say everyone else.

Boudin....that would be the peace process that Kushner resolved by telling the Palestinians to just do what Israel wants, and problem solved. Obviously a chip off the old Great Negotiator.

All the previous presidents promised to do it, Trump DID it.

hoggy, do you have it in writing that "all" the previous POTUS promised to do it? Even if they did state that as a goal, they had the good sense to not upset the applwcart of a non-shooting war in the ME.

I’m not sure why the ARDG keeps publishing this article or versions of it in order to bury earlier comments. Pandering to their evangelitard, Zionist reader base I guess.

So as a result of this POTUS screw up. Most of the Arab countries are making East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine. WTG screw up!
