The decision by the POTUS to relocate the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem demonstrates conclusively how deep runs the chap's sense of historical mission - somewhere on a par with Moses I would say. He wasn't joking when he said his physog should join those already carved in the face of Mt. Rushmore. Moving the embassy, judging by the comments of one of Trump's minions visiting Israel yesterday is to be a priority, to be done by next year. I don't know how many embassies POTUS can keep in the air at any one time, but hopefully he will maintain his disdain for his new London outpost and at least stay away from here. At least just about everybody, and incredibly our own normally craven government are not joining the American exodus from Tel Aviv. What motivates the POTUS? He clearly feels the weight of some imagined historical mission on his shoulders. His unenquiring mind thus fixes itself on symbolic gestures.
I've no idea whether he is aware of the Nobel Peace Prize and his predecessor's receipt of it even before Obama had done anything to deserve it apart from winning an election on the promise of (as it turned out) fruitless hope. That's the sort of thing which funnily enough might fit a broader category of 'fake.' But Trump is clearly locked in an honour battle with his predecessor, even though Obama has left the stage. One wonders who Trump thinks he will be fighting in the next presidential race . .
So Trump will fulfill his mission in Jerusalem and give the finger to those soft Scandinavian liberals. Meanwhile in the words of Nehemiah, Ch.2 v.13 "I went out by night by the dragon's well , and to the dung gate . . ."
It's all about rebuilding walls.
