On Wednesday, Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. On the next Your Call’s media roundtable, we’ll discuss media coverage of Trump’s statement, what life is like for Palestinians living in Jerusalem, and the expansion of Israeli settlements. We’ll also look at the worsening humanitarian crisis in Yemen.
