President Trump just reversed a major policy and Democrats are completely triggered. Trump’s action proves his ongoing commitment to undoing the mistakes of the past.
Former President Barack Obama’s policy declaring Israeli settlements on the West Bank illegal is no more. In a statement, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that “the Trump administration is reversing the Obama administration’s approach.”
“After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate, this administration agrees with President Reagan. The establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not per se inconsistent with international law,” Pompeo continued.
The secretary of state also encouraged Israel and Palestine to ultimately resolve the decades-long dispute. Additionally, he emphasized that the United States stands ready to facilitate peace however possible.
The Carter administration originally declared the Israeli settlements a violation of international law, but the Reagan administration disagrees and reversed the policy. The Bush administration remained consistent with Reagan’s decision.
