US President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted a mash-up of former US presidents who, unlike him, never recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

The groundbreaking decision was announced on Wednesday, leading to strong reactions in both Israel and around the world.

The mash-up video presents former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barak Obama all claiming their conviction that Jerusalem is the capital of Israeli. The video ends with President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as that capital.
