My act of political courage: Trump will recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital...


America's friends and foes unleashed fierce criticism on Wednesday ahead of Donald Trump's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital which is expected at 1:00 p.m. Wednesday.

But Trump is sticking to his guns, calling his decision an act of political courage.

The president previewed 'a big announcement' during a cabinet meeting, which he said concerns 'Israel and the Palestinians in the Middle East. And I think it's long overdue.'

'Many presidents have said they want to do something, and they didn't do it. Whether it's through courage or they change their mind I can't tell you. But a lot of people have said we have to do something, and they didn't do it.'

A senior administration official said Tuesday that the president would also launch a long process of moving America's embassy there from Tel Aviv.
