🇺🇸 Is the US undermining the Middle East peace process?

Donald Trump’s recent recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel provoked protests and outrage among Palestinians, their allies and other critics world-wide. That anger hasn't been placated with the visit of the US Vice President Mike Pence to the divided city.

Israeli Palestinian members of parliament were forcibly removed
while listening to his speech.

The applause in the Knesset was especially loud when he promised to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by the end of next year.

And when he repeatedly referred to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

During so much distrust and despair at US policy, is the so-called peace process still relevant?
