Jerusalem 'high point' of first year in office, Trump says

Jerusalem 'high point' of first year in office, Trump says

"I think that Jerusalem was my high point", Trump told Boaz Bismuth, Israel Hayom's editor-in-chief.

US President Donald Trump stressed in a recent interview with an Israeli newspaper that his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital was likely the most memorable event of his first year in office.

"It was very important that I recognized Jerusalem as your attractive capital city".

The Palestinians also claim east Jerusalem, home to the city's most sensitive holy sites, as the capital of their hoped-for state. To be completely honest, there were others who did not thank me.

"Friedman's recommendations and advice, which do not aim to achieve a just peace on the basis of worldwide legitimacy, are what led to this crisis in American-Palestinian relations", Abu Rdainah said.

"I understand why other presidents failed to keep this promise [to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital]". "But it was an extremely important promise - and I fulfilled it", he said.

Oxycontin maker Purdue Pharma will stop promoting opioids to physicians
Purdue Pharma pleaded guilty in 2007 to felony charges for false marketing of OxyContin and paid $635 million as a result. The CDC also reported that more than 1,000 people are treated in emergency rooms for prescription opioid overdoses.

Trump's December 6 Jerusalem declaration upended decades of US policy and countered an global consensus that Jerusalem's fate should be decided in peace negotiations.

Trump later said that he had recognized Jerusalem in order to take the issue off the table, adding that he had planned for Israel "to pay" in future negotiations for his declaration.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley recently was on CNN to talk about the Trump administration's decision to move the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Also Friday, U.S. ambassador to Israel David Friedman lashed out at the liberal Haaretz over an editorial by one of the newspaper's opinion writers that used a derogatory word play to describe a West Bank settlement home to an Israeli who was recently stabbed to death by a Palestinian. The assailant fled the scene.

Haaretz's publisher, Amos Shocken, responded over the platform with a critique that echoed Palestinian complaints.
