The US Foreign Policy under Trump Administration to Recognize Jerusalem as The State Capital of Israel

Hasbi Aswar

Abstract


Sebuah pernyataan kontroversial dari Presiden Amerika Serikat, Donald Trump, yang secara tegas menyatakan Jerusalem sebagai ibukota dari Israel memancing perdebatan yang mengancam harmoni di Timur Tengah. Sangkalan keras banyak bermunculan mulai dari negara-negara Asia Tenggara hingga Eropa atas pernyataan Trump yang kemudian merepresentasikan kebijakan luar negeri Amerika Serikat. Pertanyaan keras dari Trump dianggap memperkeruh keadaaan dari perselisihan antara Israel dan Palestina daripada menurunkan tensi konflik. Esai ini berargumen bahwa pernyataan yang keluar dari Trump untuk mengakui Jerusalem sebagai ibukota resmi dari Israel, dipengaruhi oleh keadaan dari politik domestik Amerika Serikat, guna melunasi janji kampanyenya dari Partai Republik yang mayoritas basis pemilih berasal dari Kristen Evangelist.

Keywords: foreign policy, domestic politics, Middle East
