Sadly, this is shaping up as a disaster as 12 million Palestinians have been told to suck on it for Trump’s pleasure. I’m afraid I was naive to even hope that this would be ignored. There is a price to be paid for this and this cannot be backed away from. The fact that there was nothing to be gained from this simply reinforces US decline. In a single act Trump destroyed any remaining US credibility as an arbitrator.
