Donald Trump has been hailed as a leader who keeps his promises. But the horrific violence and diplomatic rows in the wake of the US embassy’s move to Jerusalem illustrate how not all campaign pledges are created equal.
Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed that the decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem was “yet another example of Donald Trump keeping promises to you, the American people.”
