James J. Marlow weighs in on why Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and is about to be sworn in as commander-in-chief while also highlighting the promises Trump has made toward Israel and commending his choice of appointing Jared Kushner as a senior White House adviser on Middle East issues.

When the president-elect was asked whether he would keep his campaign promise and implement the move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to West Jerusalem, Trump declined to answer. “I’m not going to comment on that. But we’ll see,” Trump said, suggesting he may finally just be learning the art of public diplomacy, which will come in hand on many occasions over the next four years in the top job.
