    Why has President Trump taken a pastor along in his embassy-opening delegation to Jerusalem who has been outspoken about his belief that Jews* are going to go to "hell"? Is it a political calculation of some kind or is it driven by religious principle on Trump's part?

    Edit: * Muslims, Mormons and Hindus too.

    His motivation is easy to understand - America First. Rest of the World second.

    That’s the proper motivation and mindset for the president and leader of America.

    Every president for the last few decades has said Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. President Donald J. Trump is just the only one to put action behind the words.
