About: Israel vs Palestinians
Donald Trump, against the guidance and wishes of every major ally, unilaterally recognized Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. While it is true the Federal government did state that it believed Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel before Trump took office, it has refrained from officially recognizing it out of fear of sabotaging any hopes of a two state solution between the Israelis and Palestinians.
