WATCH: Trump TROLLS Obama, Bush, And Clinton With Video. It’s Awesome.

President Donald Trump hosted a Hanukkah celebration at the White House on Thursday – one day after recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.

“Right now I’m thinking about what’s going on and the love that’s all over Israel and all about Jerusalem,” Trump said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Trump drew strong applause and cheers from the crowd for his remarks as he was joined by his family, Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, Holocaust survivor Louise Lawrence-Israels and Orthodox Rabbi Meir Soloveichik.

Soloveichik recited a traditional prayer that he claimed had special meaning this year in light of Trump’s recent actions with Israel

“For the first time since the founding of the State of Israel, an American president has courageously declared what we have always proclaimed, which is that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” Soloveichik exclaimed.

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!”
