Let’s stop pretending exercise is fun. Like work, you’ve just got to do it

Sunday 17:13 GMT

Sunday 15:24 GMT

US President Donald Trump's call to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights is being seen by some observers as a blatant attempt to influence upcoming Israeli elections, with experts warning that it serves neither US nor Israeli interests and could encourage other countries to make land grabs.

In an abrupt break with diplomatic norms, Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to call on the United States to recognize Israel's full sovereignty over the Golan because of its "critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability (sic)."
