Flashback: Cruz warns of Trump’s phony Israel embassy promise (includes other conservatives' Takes)

In a week full of acrimonious conflict over scandals and media reporting, perhaps the biggest policy news of the week was lost in the shuffle. The Trump White House announced it would not be moving the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem at this time, a violation of one of Trump’s most dramatic and direct campaign promises. Worse than the decision itself is the rationale behind the decision – a gesture to promote the peace process, the holy grail of the globalist foreign policy swamp.
Thus, the indefinite delay on moving the embassy is a pungent example of Trump’s adoption of his predecessor’s policies regarding Israel. In fact, the administration has declined to affirm that Israel owns the Western Wall and has intimated that it is subject to final status agreements, the very sentiment that conservatives lambasted Obama and Kerry for adopting in the waning days of his presidency.

This is not just about Trump and Israel; this is emblematic of the destruction of the entire Republican Party on every issue. It would be better if Republicans were simply open about being just one little step to the right of wherever the Democrat Part is at a given moment. We’d be able to air this debate out in the primaries and fix the party. Yet whether it’s for president, Congress, or governor, every Republican runs emphatically on our views and then pursues diametrically opposed policies upon assuming office.
