Prior to the recognition, both Trump’s allies and his enemies warned him of the consequences of Washington’s shift to Jerusalem.
On Saturday, the Hamas movement called for a new "intifada" if Washington carries out its plans to shift to Jerusalem. Trump's Egyptian ally Abdel Fattah al-Sisi warned Trump to “not complicate the situation in region”. Turkey said it will "throw the region and the world into a fire" calling the move a "great disaster" that will lead the way to "turmoil, chaos and clashes".
The announcement has also caused various reactions online. Some are excited and are endorsing this extreme step, others are apprehensive, whereas the majority of Palestinians and Palestine supporters are angry.
Many took to social media to highlight their reactions, with some lambasting the "unjust" reaction of mainstream media.
