Two good points about Trump’s foreign policy:
This article states: “The company controlled by the family of the White House adviser Jared Kushner is close to receiving a bailout of its financially troubled flagship building by a company with ties to the government of Qatar, according to executives briefed on the deal.”
It looks like a conflict of interest since Jared Kushner is still negotiating in the Mideast.
I don’t know how anybody can think this is right.
This is a violation of the Emoluments clause.
From this column: “President Trump’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem is a classic in the genre: narrowly self-serving, completely ignorant of history and context, and liable to unleash mayhem as a result.”
Fox was outraged by the coverage given to the protests and the killings by Isrealis. Sad!
The Washington Post provides background on Robert Jeffress.
Mitt Romney summed it up well:

Trump is a bigot and associates with bigots. This was a terrible choice.
Update: More on Jeffress and Rev. John Hagee
The article states: “A Dallas evangelical pastor who once said that Jewish people are going to hell and a megachurch televangelist who claimed that Hitler was part of God’s plan to return Jews to Israel both played prominent roles on Monday in the opening ceremony of the new American Embassy in Jerusalem.”
It’s great that the three prisoners were released and I’ll give Trump some credit for it but as usual Trump used it to boost himself.
