President Donald Trump enjoys trolling his predecessors, especially when it comes to issues where they failed the American people and he is succeeding.
Take the U.S. embassy move to Jerusalem for example.
In 1995, Congress passed a provision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something that Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama had refused to move on.
Candidate Donald Trump promised during his campaign that he would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, and on Wednesday, he followed through with a public announcement to the world.
From Daily Wire:
President Donald Trump hosted a Hanukkah celebration at the White House on Thursday – one day after recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.
Later in the night Trump took a shot at former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama when he tweeted a video montage of all three former presidents making promises to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city followed by a clip of him delivering.
Trump tweeted, “I fulfilled my campaign promise – others didn’t!”

American News24 reports that President Trump took another shot at Obama, check out the collection of Obama Christmas cards vs. Trump’s first official White House card…
From Daily Caller:
Candidate Trump promised many times on the campaign trail that, as president, he would have America saying “Merry Christmas” again.
Trump has certainly made good on that promise, regularly using the greeting in speeches and statements. When the Trump’s released their official presidential Christmas card, the words Merry Christmas were front and center, emblazoned in gold.
Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, sent out eight official presidential Christmas cards in his tenure. None of them said “Merry Christmas.”
The final shadow box contains all of Obama’s Christmas cards. Mounted above them? The Christmas card from the Trump family. With the golden “Merry Christmas” on full display.
More via Conservative Tribune:
President Donald Trump reminded everyone in the nation during the White House tree lighting that Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season.
As recorded on The White House website, the lighting ceremony took place on Nov. 30.
President Trump carried on White House tradition and spoke at the ceremony. Without hesitation or embarrassment, he took the stage and immediately began to recall the Christmas story.
“The Christmas Story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all—the gift of God’s love for all of humanity,” he began.
“Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of his life forever changed the course of human history,” he continued.
“That is the true source of joy this time of the year. That is what makes every Christmas ‘merry,’” he stated.
More on Trump, who just did something Obama never thought he could…
The manufacturing industry posted its best month of job gains all year, leading a better-than-expected rise in private payrolls during November.
Companies added 190,000 in the month as the economy seemed to return to normal following the violent hurricane season, according to the monthly report from ADP and Moody’s Analytics. The total was just above the 185,000 expected from economists surveyed by Reuters and below the 235,000 growth in October.
The manufacturing sector added 40,000 positions alone.
“The job market is red hot, with broad-based job gains across industries and company sizes,” Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s, said in a statement Wednesday. “There is a mounting threat that the job market will overheat next year.”
The growth comes as the government’s headline unemployment rate is at 4.1 percent, a 17-year low that economists believe will continue to decline. The Labor Department will release its closely watched official nonfarm payrolls count Friday, with economists expecting growth of 175,000 and the jobless rate holding steady.
“We’re going sub-4 percent by this time next year, and that’s an economy that could overheat,” Zandi added in an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Talk about promises kept…the revival of American manufacturing is staggering. In the ADP report 40,000 new manufacturing jobs were created in November the highest number ever for the report (back to 2002).

Enter Obama from last year when asked about the Carrier Corp jobs in Indiana, per Gateway Pundit:
“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back. Well how exectly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s uh-uh no answer to it. He just says. “I’m going to negotiate a better deal.” Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.
