The World Reacts To Trump’s Jerusalem Decision, In Photos

    President Trump formally declared Jerusalem to be Israel’s capital and directed the State Department to start the process of moving the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv. The move was said to demonstrate Trump’s inclination to prioritize domestic politics over the desires of U.S. allies in the Middle East and Europe who warned the announcement could spark violence in a region that is already a powder keg, with the exception of Israel of course.

    Here, courtesy of Bloomberg and Reuters, is a snapshot of the world’s response to the historic Trump announcement:
