Trump Just Officially Put the US on a Path to War With Iran
Donald Trump has committed what will go down as one of the greatest acts of self-sabotage in America’s modern history. He has put the United States on a path towards war with Iran and may trigger a wider regional war and nuclear arms race.

Jerusalem to Name City Square in Trump’s Honor
The mayor of Jerusalem announced on Tuesday, May 8, that he intends to name a public square near the soon-to-be-opened American embassy in honor of President Donald Trump, according to the Jerusalem Press Office.
Though many U.S. presidents promised to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, Trump was the first to keep his word. The embassy is scheduled to open on May 14.
Jerusalem plans to host an official event to celebrate the naming of the public square with American dignitaries. The site is located at the intersection of David Flusser Street and Kfar Etzion Street. The city’s naming committee greenlighted a new name for the square last year.
“This is the way in which Jerusalem returns love to the president and residents of the United States who stand by the state of Israel,” Mayor Nir Barkat said in a statement. “President Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish people, stand on the side of historical truth, and do the right thing.”

Zionist Group Awards Trump its Highest Honor: ‘No President Has Done More’ to Promote Zionism
While President Donald Trump has often referred to himself a “friend of Israel,” he has now been officially recognized for that stance by a pro-Zionist group that advocates for Jewish nationalism.
On Monday, the Friends of Zion Museum presented President Trump with its Friends of Zion Award at the White House.
“No president in history has ever built such an alliance for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and no president has courageously stood up for the State of Israel on the global stage as you had Mr. President,” declared Dr. Mike Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Museum. “President Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem will secure his place in history as the first American president to take that step since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948.”
