Journalist and political commentator, Richard Silverstein, believes that the current US administration has one of the most “confused” and “dysfunctional” policies on the Middle East compared to any previous government, stressing that none of what this administration’s representatives say should be taken seriously.
The remarks came in reaction to Vice President Mike Pence saying that President Donald Trump was giving “serious consideration” to moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds.
“Trump has said that he wanted to move the embassy in the past and then he has backtracked from that. And now apparently at a ceremony for Israel’s Independence Day, he is going forward with it. So I do not think it really means very much,” Silverstein told Press TV on Wednesday.
“I think he [Trump] wakes up in the morning and one advisor tells him to move the embassy and that is the policy for the day. The next morning, he wakes up and the advisor tells him the opposite and then there is a new policy. That is really what we are facing with US policy,” he noted.
