tRump declaration of Jerusalem as capital of Israel in perspective

heri_cles

Well, it looks like tRump's declaration of Jerusalem as capital of Israel is steeped in the same sense of nativism, racism, bigotry, and hatred as so many of his other actions and statements.

Yes, this is all fitting together....the son of a Ku Klux Klansmen who detests non-Christians, blacks. Mexicans and Hispanics, championed birtherism, pushed for a ban of Muslims, wants to build a Wall on our border with Mexico, a friendly country who has deep ties to our country and to so many Americans.

tRump supporters claim this guy is not a racist...a denial that many of them are all too familiar with. Maybe it is time for them to jump off the tRump bandwagon and do some soul searching.

The Evangelicals were behind that move. Pence and his ilk want to bring about the parousia.

Trump loves the idea of Israel's wall and thinks we should wall of Mexico, because , you know, they are shooting missiles at us, conducting terror attacks, and pose a large threat to our country.

The reasoning behind this is more likely to be currying favor with Netanyahu than any realpolitik move. First, he promises to bring peace to the Middle East and then sets the process back 30 years to demonstrate his ignorance or for a reason as banal as the one I suggest.
