There's a bunch of other people who live there, too. On Sunday, Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, the Sephardi chief rabbi of Israel, praised Trump at an event in Jerusalem, calling him "a king of kindness". When referring to African-Americans he used the word "kushi" which is the word used by the Talmud but is a pejorative term in modern Hebrew.

While Trump has been unable to make many of those promises a reality, one that has come true is moving the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Let's say you know!

The Daily Mail says that Ward, who now writes for the Huffington Post, has been tight-lipped about her new Kushner-Trump project, but she has spoken on the record about why she believes that Kushner and Trump continue to work for the Trump administration, and she says it's all about them and their future.

It's not the first time that Yosef has attracted criticism for his comments with a history of questionable remarks.


He had also gotten into trouble before for suggesting secular women behave like "animals" because they dress immodestly.

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who represents Israel's Sephardic Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent reportedly blessed the couple before they attended the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem Monday, which sparked criticism worldwide.

The biggest new Trump-related story from Monday didn't happen in the United States - it was finally the day when the government opened a new embassy to Israel in Jerusalem which, predictably, led to a ton of violence and death. Ivanka Trump's title is assistant to the president, and Kushner is a senior adviser to the president.

'Great to join the friends of Zion for an awesome evening commemorating the dedication of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Israel, ' she wrote. The Comedy Central host played video of Trump at a rally, where he told supporters that when he was told the cost of the embassy's move would be $1 billion, he stopped signing the executive order midsignature and crossed out his name with a few giant X's. The 70th anniversary of Israel's creation as a state, with which the embassy move was timed to coincide, was another.
