Trump Breaks His Promise to Move U. S. Embassy to Jerusalem – Apologists Blame Others

Because for Conservatives Trumpie Can Never be Wrong or Do Wrong

One of the strongest positions that Trumpman took during the campaign was that unlike the rest of the sniveling world he had the courage to recognize that Jerusalem was the true capital of Israel.  And like everything else he has gone back on this, changed without a word. 

But it is not his fault as an op/ed piece in the WSJ explains.  It’s those bureaucrats in the State Department and the rest of government.

It is now evident that even a commitment of this much presidential prestige has been overturned by the U.S. State Department’s famous determination to continue the peace process with the Palestinians to the end of days.

Now the important thing here is not the policy, that is a positive step because moving the embassy brought no benefits and a lot of risk.  The important thing is that Trump supporters need to understand that nothing, and we mean nothing the man says can be taken at face value.

Donald Trump made many campaign promises in his run to the Presidency, but none sounded more sincere than his commitment to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The week of his inauguration he repeated the pledge to an Israeli news outlet, adding, “I’m not a person who breaks promises.”

But his true believers, those who constantly deceive themselves will never admit that they are the suckers.  And so it must be someone else to blame.  Will it ever be possible for folks like the cowardly conservatives at the WSJ ever acknowledge the truth.  No, not as long as lies support their positions.
