December 8, 2017: Trump announces that the US formally recognizes Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel; drives the NeverTrumpers nuts. The bill mandating this was passed by the US Congress in 1995 but gave presidents the permission to "waive" implementing the law if "it might cause undue harm." Clinton, Bush II, Obama all signed waivers every six months to stop implementation of the law. It seems Congress might have gotten the message and could have changed the law sometime over the past 22 years. Trump made a few phone calls; talked with his military experts; looked at the failure of the peace process for the past 50 years; and, made his decision. A profile in courage.
January 31, 2017: daily, signs executive orders, one by one, fulfilling his campaign pledges. No one has seen this before. Truly remarkable.
President Trump will announce Monday that the US embassy in Israel will move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. January 21, 2017.
How Will Mainstream Media Refer To President Donald John Trump?
It appears the mainstream media is still looking to settle on the go-by-name for President Donald John Trump. Like Nixon, his last name is so short, there will be no need to go by his initials, DJT. Nor will we likely ever see "John" used. I think it comes down to "President Trump" or "Donald Trump." With all the Trumps in the West Wing, and with so many folks having trouble putting "president" and "Trump" in the same sentence my hunch is we will go with the standard being set by The [London] Independent: "Donald Trump." Not "president" but simply how most of us know him from reality TV: "Donald Trump." The least likely is "The Donald" but one never knows.
