    What tosh, the US president doesn't need Congress' backing to effect foreign policy, he can do it with a tweet. Israel is a good example, Trump has only to say "I recognise Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and I won't condemn the building of Jewish settlements" and the two-state solution is dead in the water.
    This does not change my point.

    In other words: it is impossible for Trump to ruin the political system in the United States?
    Elaborate.

    What point was that? I said Trump has a lot of power to affect foreign policy, you said he didn't because Congress can restrain him - but that's not true - so, what point are you actually making?
