President Donald Trump’s approval rating among Jewish Israelis has dropped by 23 percentage points since he took office in January
“And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:” Daniel 2:21 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: When candidate Trump told prospective Jewish and Christian voters that he his promise to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv was “100% guaranteed” to take place shortly after he became president. This platform promises is one of the main reasons why Christians and Jews voted for him. In a few days, President Trump will give a speech in Israel, in Jerusalem, and his spokespeople are playing coy. Why did God allow Trump to win the election against all odds? To keep this promise. The president should choose wisely, very wisely. The Bible says that God “setteth up kings”, He also removes them as well.
One possible factor: the absence of a firm decision as to whether he will move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as promised.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the poll, conducted by Smith Research was released on Thursday and found that only 56% of 500 Jewish Israelis who were polled said they considered the Trump administration more pro-Israel than pro-Palestinian. That figure is down from 79% on January 11.
Jewish Israelis do not think Trump has turned against them, however. The poll also found only a one percentage point increase in those who consider the Trump administration to be more pro-Palestinian, rising from 3% to 4%.
Donald Trump Promises To Move Embassy From Tel Aviv To Jerusalem:
“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:3 (KJV)
The poll reportedly had a margin of error of 4.5%. Another poll will be taken after Trump’s Israel visit. The Jerusalem Post notes that Trump will need to work to convince Israelis that he is on their side during his visit to the Holy Land next week.
Also on Thursday, a White House official told Breitbart News that it does not expect to announce plans to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, despite Trump’s campaign promise to do so.
“There’s no planned announcement for the embassy on the trip,” the White House official said. However, the official reportedly cautioned that the plan could change. Separately, the Post reported Thursday that a decision on the embassy could take place after Trump’s visit.
