As Twitchy told you earlier today, President Trump has decided that the U.S. Embassy should be moved to Jerusalem, and that the U.S. would recognize that city as Israel’s capital. NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell is reporting “sources” claiming that Trump faced some opposition:

Well, there can only be one reason for that! Just guess…
He is trying to incite conflict in order to distract from the Russia Investigation closing in. DO NOT LET HIM DISTRACT US. https://t.co/xMIIpGH5qJ

The Resistance sure has a lot invested in that Russia narrative.
No, he is just stating the obvious that Jerusalem IS the capital of Israel.

Wait @mitchellreports. Didn’t the 1995 law designate that Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel? And didn’t a majority of Dems as well as Republicans vote for the law? So isn’t DJT just following the law. So you libs doing another flip flop?
