Skip to comments.Dems blast Trump for Jerusalem decision despite past support

Some of the top congressional Democrats blasting President Trumps decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. Embassy there have in fact supported that very position in the past.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., penned a letter to the president last week, urging him not to move the embassy. Feinsteins letter said the move would spark violence, further alienate the United States and undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.
The future of Jerusalem is an issue that should be decided by Israel and the Palestinians, not unilaterally by the United States, Feinstein wrote.

But Feinstein was among those who voted for a 1995 law passed by Congress that required the relocation of the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The measure also required the U.S. recognize the city as the capital of Israel.
That law, the Jerusalem Embassy Act, passed the Senate by a 93-5 margin. But it has never been implemented due to a loophole that allowed successive presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama the option to issue waivers every six months to delay the embassy move.

Dems do what their boss tells them. Follow the money.
There's been violence since Israel became a country in 1948.
Wasn’t it a country in Biblical times?
Despite past democrat support for the same thing. Continuing evidence that the rules are ALWAYS different for Democrats.
Joe Balooka Democrats...
Who needs ‘em? We’ll be scraping them off the sidewalk soon enough.
Isn’t that why we refer to them as hypocrites?
Last I heard Israel is a sovereign country and has the right to say where its capitol is.
Dems are still trying to get used to being called on for their past actions, something the ole “media” would never have done....
[ The future of Jerusalem is an issue that should be decided by Israel and the Palestinians, not unilaterally by the United States, Feinstein wrote. ]
Thanks Dianne, for a completely illogical statement. Quite typical for a Democrat.
any Christian or Jew who votes for today’s antiAmerican, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish democrappic party...is NUTS! crazy insane
Lest we forget, the Democrats are the ones that booed Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. And then they booed “God” in some manner, as I recall.
Any corrections necessary appreciated in advance.
They are spirit of antichrist. That’s why they loved spirit of antichrist Barack Husein Obama so much.
It amazes me the chance having been out there for nearly 70 years for these two parties to hash out their differences and having failed, a Democrat voices the idea that’s still the preferred method.
Dianne gets it once in a great while, but she clearly isn’t firing on all cylinder’s here.
Clinton proposed it; both setting the capital and our embassy there then put in a six month waiver where ever six months it’s waived again - and by presidents up until Trump.

Trump should tweet this, it would drive the MSM nuts!
I will say, having watched what the Democrats have pushed for over the last five decades, it’s hard not to agree with your premise here.
anti-Christ pretty much sums it up
She just put out a nonsense sound bite to attack the President.
Like all Democrats do.
When the real Antichrist confirms the 7-year covenant, they’ll be all smiles and giggles.
For 1,260 days......and then the even bigger surprise comes....
Yeah, they’re gonna march right into it. Along with most of the world.
They will say, “WHY didn’t anybody WARN us?”
They do not have ears to hear. It will play out exactly as God has prophesied. To the letter.
“Dems do what their boss tells them. Follow the money.”
Exactly. Never believe Schumer, and Pelosi, or even Perez are the leaders of the Democrat Party. They are only the lead mouthpieces of the true leadership hidden behind the curtain that hides a wall that hides a locked door.
Not only did they boo God. They removed mention of God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel from their 2012 party platform. When Democrats realized that move wasn’t playing well in Peoria, they tried to put those two items back in the wording of the party platform.
Former LA Mayor Villaraigosa had the gavel. After calling for a voice vote on the motion to put God back in the party platform, it did not appear the motion had carried. After all, these were Democrat loyalists and hardliners.
Nevertheless, to avoid nasty repercussions, he declared the motion carried by a 2-1 margin. At that point the lefty grandma school teachers in tennis shoes and union thugs let out a lusty boo. Now Democrats are eternally on record booing God, although they might have been booing the mayor’s crook tactic.
