    I mean I hope it's true that it's not even close to being built by the time he leaves office.

I can understand he was clueless when he ran and made the promise but I assumed once he took office he would be educated on International issues. The world is just waiting for the next President.
    It is what it is. He won the election.

    That said, there is no doubt that he made this mule-headed move entirely for the purpose of exciting his domestic base and temporarily changing the narrative on the US news media. That's a piss poor reason to make a boneheaded decision that adversely affects US diplomacy and security.

If our Embassy actually is relocated, it will be many years from now, and Donald Trump won't likely be President any longer.

    I don't hate Muslims, The Church I attend teach English to Muslims immigrating from Egypt English. I have no problem with Muslisms I live near and work in Little Kurdistan.

    OH. MY. GOD. If that is the case the Middle East will be a shit storm like never before.

    It's bad enough when Mohammed is part of a cartoon or in a book...

    Ala akhbar will probably be replaced by something like For the love of our sacred city in translation.
