Is Trump deliberately trying to cause trouble?

Trump is about to agree to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to East Jerusalem, and to more or less recognising it as the Israeli capital. This will enrage the Palistanians , cause huge diplomatic problems with Jordan and others.

Is there no end to this man’s dictatorial method of blindly making such huge decisions?

FE, luckily they heeded the advice given them.

I hope that I'm wrong

It seems Trump has more regard for opinions in the US Israeli lobby and his “!colony” - Israel than he has for his traditional allies , the Pope (!) , the UN etc. East Jerusalem appears to be de facto incorporated into Jerusalem whereas it has been regarded by the UN as a future capital of Palestine, if a 2 state solution is to be achieved. The integration of East Jerusalem is the most inflammatory issue here.
