Over the past several decades, most presidential candidates declared they believe Jerusalem is the true capital of Israel and that they would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem if elected.  History has proven this to be political rhetoric to capture more votes as no past president has followed through on the promise – Until now.  Yesterday, President Trump kept his campaign promise–a rarity for candidates these days–and proclaimed the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and would begin plans to move our embassy there.  Whatever you think of President, Trump it is certainly refreshing to see a candidate actually follow through on a campaign promise.

Other than Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, world leaders are reacting with anger, claiming this will set the “peace process” back. This is the same ‘peace process” that has produced zero results for many decades.  This morning we will discuss the potential effects of this courageous move by a controversial president.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council and hear some fascinating insights on how the Supreme Court works, as well as her thoughts on the opening arguments in the Jack Phillips’ religious freedom case.  Is religious freedom hanging in the balance and could it come down to one man’s vote?
