President Donald Trump is not about to cut short his tenure as the 45th president of the United States be disregarded, as was seen Thursday at a White House Hanukkah party.
Despite the media’s shameful attempts to link the president to anti-Semitism, the room broke out in a chant, “Four more years,” after the president reminded them of his decision to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem — announced one year ago to the day.
“Thank you very much. That’s actually six more,” Trump replied, correcting them to the fact the he has two more years remaining in his current term. “I’ve actually never heard four more years. … We’ll go for six and then we’ll all be in very good shape.”
In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting that claimed 11 lives, which Trump referenced in his short remarks, the president spoke of a need to “stamp out this vile hatred from the world,” according to Politico.
“Throughout history, the Jewish people have suffered unthinkable repression and terrible violence,” Trump stated. “Yet in the face of this hardship, the Jewish people have endured, overcome and thrived. Thrived like few, that I can tell you.”
“In the aftermath of that wicked assault, we reaffirmed our solemn duty to confront anti-Semitism everywhere it occurs,” he added. “We must stamp out this vile hatred from the world.”
The message serving as an antithesis to the media narrative that the president is a racist and an anti-Semite.
Here’s a clip of part of President’s Trump’s short speech:

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu marked the one year anniversary of the decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem on Twitter.
He was effusive in his praise of Trump in a number of tweets.
“Here I must add the tremendous support that we receive from the US government and from
@POTUS Donald Trump,” Netanyahu’ official Twitter account said. “Exactly one year ago he made a historic decision because it has historical importance and because it recognized history.”
Peace cannot be advanced on the basis of lies, and a policy based on lies is doomed to crash on the rocks of reality. @POTUS Trump, in a brave and genuine move, recognized what we know existed here not only since the Maccabees, but since the time of King David 800 years before

In the recognition of Jerusalem, of our heritage and the link that that no other people and no other city have, @POTUS Trump simply spoke the truth, and truth is the basis for everything and the basis for peace.
