    So why is it OK for Presidents before Trump to say they will move the capital to Jerusalem but don't?

    Were we all counting on their continuous lies? Is that preferable?

    congress made the law, Trump just doing his duty to enforce it.

    But you did hit on a point...All previous presidents have lied in their campaign promises. Trump is keeping his promises and many folks cannot handle that.

    And I never said nor inferred it was OK for previous presidents to lie.

    Nothing is "moving to Jerusalem", not even the US Embassy.

    This is all about Trump receiving his next "hit" of press facetime.

    And, as usual, he doesn't happen to care who gets hurt over it.

    You’ve already had it pointed out to you that the capital of Israel is Jerusalem, nothing is “moving”.

    At one time, the constitution of the DPRK (North Korea) stated that Seoul's the
    DPRK's official capital and Pyongyang's only the DPRK's temporary capital.

    Funny, the rest of us call it "history".
