Now the hermit state has joined near-universal condemnation of the US president's decision on Jerusalem, calling it a "reckless, wicked act". "Considering the fact that the mentally deranged dotard openly called for a total destruction of a sovereign state at the...

    Czech President Milos Zeman on Saturday accused EU states of being "cowards" in their response to his U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
