    President Trump did not "Declare" or "Proclaim" Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel; but "Officially Acknowledged" that fact. Israel named its own Capital, according to the 3000 plus tear old FACT! It is interesting how many haters of God and antichrists are making such an uproar about it! Not to feel sorry for them; but to take notice and keep in mind...we are in the end of the last days.
