President Donald Trump posted a historic video on social media Friday morning, calling-out his predecessors for hypocritically recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital but refusing to relocate the American embassy to the holy city.
The compilation clip shows Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama all referring to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and even pledging to relocate the US Ambassador to the ancient city; with Trump writing, “I fulfilled my campaign promise –others didn’t!”

President Trump made history on Wednesday, fulfilling two-decades worth of American promises to officially recognize Jerusalem as the “capital of Israel” and relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv.
“After more than two decades of waivers, we are no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians,” Trump told the nation this week. “It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result.”
“Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. While previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise, they failed to deliver. Today, I am delivering,” he added.
