Leftists Exposed: Summary of Criticisms of Trump
The Democrats have crucified Trump over every move he has made since he became president.
But their most recent criticism of president Trump is over something Democrats have been voting to do for over a decade.
Google “Media criticizes Obama over Jerusalem” and here’s what you get:
Notice not a single article about Obama who said the very same thing about Jerusalem as then-candidate Trump.
Further, the top trending article for that same query is the New York Times explaining how “Nearly Every Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Disagrees…”
Allow me to finish: “..with Trump’s Jerusalem Decision.
By now most of the world is aware of the president’s decision. President Trump carried through on the promise to officially move the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, thereby recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel.
Like other presidents before him, President Trump campaigned on this issue. The only difference between President Trump and other presidents is he actually followed through.
Below is a video of various presidents speaking on the issue of Jerusalem. As you will see, they all spoke of the importance of Israel as an ally. They further spoke of the importance of recognizing Jerusalem. However, only ONE president did anything.
Obama made this promise back in ’08 when he first start campaigning for the presidency. Early on, Obama sought the financing of the Jews.
“I continue to say that Jerusalem will be the capital of Israel. I have said that before and I will say it again.”
Yet Obama never moved the embassy. Now that President Trump has moved it, let’s see how Obama attempts to take credit.
Hypocritical Democrats on Display
In 1995 Congress passed “the relocation of the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.” The measure was to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and also called for the U.S. to recognize the city as the undivided capital of Israel.
It was also passed by the Senate by an overwhelming 93-5 margin.
One of the Democrats spearheading this decision was Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.
She actually played a key role in getting the bill to pass in 1995 by inserting a provision that would allow the president to issue a waiver to delay the embassy move six months at a time, if the president determined it was in the U.S. national security interest.
“Senate lawmakers worked out a compromise Monday on a Republican-backed bill to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem by 1999.
Republicans sponsors of the bill, led by Senate Republican Leader Bob Dole, agreed to give President Clinton a ‘presidential waiver’ allowing him to indefinitely postpone the 1999 deadline for moving the embassy.
While previous versions of thee bill had no such language, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., convinced proponents that giving the White House this concession might make the President more likely to sign off on the legislation.
The new language would enable President Clinton to postpone moving the embassy by six months and would not limit the number of postponements.”
Feinstein’s also rallied 10 additional Democratic members to support the bill, giving it a veto-proof majority.
In a move that showcases the nature of Democrats, Feinstein now calls the move “terrible”.
“Reports indicate the president will move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” the California senator tweeted. “I wrote him last week to explain why that would be a terrible decision.”

In addition to this blatant hypocrisy the leftist news media outlets jumped on board the hate president Trump train to spread more lies and fear about his decision:
“Defiant Donald Trump confirms US will recognise Jerusalem as capital of Israel
Nearly Every former Ambassador to Israel disagrees with Trump
U.S. allies reject Trump’s Jerusalem pronouncement as ‘very dangerous’ and ’catastrophic’
– The Washington Post
Such a Bad Deal: Trump and Jerusalem
–The American Prospect
Do we really need to speculate on what the headlines would read if Barack Obama had kept to his word and done the exact same thing President Trump did?
Here’s one: Perhaps Obama now deserves that Nobel Peace Prize?
Of course the Left would be singing Obamas praises. He would be hailed as revolutionary. I know Conservatives would certainly say great things about this move, as painful as it would be to recognize the move as such.
However, when President Trump does what almost every other modern-day president said he would do, he gets criticized.
As Orrin Hatch said of President Trump, “He’s decisive.”
But he’s more than that. He’s honest and he keeps his word.
No matter how hard they try to spin this move as a bad one, the truth is out: Democrats were always in favor of this decision until Trump did it.
