Fake news
Reportedly folks at 4chan concocted a story about Trump in Russia and fed it to buzzfeed. Somehow it got into a CIA report and was being taken seriously by CNN. CNN has since pulled their story.

Re: Reaction: The Trump Inauguration
Given all this, I think $50,000 a year would be more than enough compensation.

Trump is reportedly accepting $1 per year.

After a couple of hundred years, it looks like you got yourself a monarch again.

America’s policy on Jerusalem is laid out in “The Jerusalem Embassy Act 1995” passed by the Senate (93-5) and the House (374-37) on 24 October 1995.

https://www.congress.gov/104/plaws/publ45/PLAW-104publ45.pdf

The Act states:

SEC. 3. TIMETABLE.

(a) Statement of the Policy of the United States.

--Jerusalem should remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected.
--Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and
--the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.

Presidents until now have issued a waiver every six months delaying this action.
