Two Good Moves : Mexico City and Jerusalem

First, it is certainly a good move to reinstate The Mexico City Policy, as here* defined:

"The Mexico City Policy has been reinstated. No Federal funding of abortion in foreign countries.

"The Mexico City Policy is an intermittent United States government policy that required all foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that receive federal funding to refrain from performing or promoting abortion services as a method of family planning with non-U.S. government funds in other countries."


Other good thing, moving embassy to Jerusalem. This means, at least potentially, US Embassador will not be seeing Gaza Palestinians as much as those of Bethlehem or certain blocks in Jerusalem. This should help bring about some US thaw in the relation to Palestinians.
