Chuck Schumer agrees with Trump on something, In other news Nancy Pelosi just agreed that $1,000 isn’t crumbs
Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer took a break from endless obstruction and actually agreed with President Trump on something today. Schumer agrees with the President for moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Just kidding about the part of Nancy Pelosi agreeing that $1,000 isn’t crumbs. The elitist Representative to California seems intent on destroying the Democrat party. Even last week expressing her desire to raise taxes if she were to become speaker again.
“In a long overdue move, we have moved our embassy to Jerusalem. Every nation should have the right to choose its capital,” Schumer said in a statement. “I sponsored legislation to do this two decades ago, and I applaud President Trump for doing it.”
The embassy opening sparked bloody protest along the Gaza strip. Israeli forces killed 43 protesters in the deadliest fighting since the 2014 border cross war. Those who opposed the embassy move say it cast a shadow on Israel’s festive occasion.

President Donald Trump said in a video message played at the embassy inauguration that he remains committed to “facilitating a lasting peace agreement” between Israelis and Palestinians.
“A great day for Israel!” Trump tweeted earlier Monday.
