Despite widespread international opposition to the move, Trump is expected to recognize the city as Israel’s capital on Wednesday.

In Europe, the US proposal has been met with skepticism and warnings. French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that he reminded Trump that the status of Jerusalem should be determined during negotiations for a two-state solution.

This is the second article about Sigmar. Did anybody ask for Sigmar’s opinion on world affairs, or is he just mouthy?
