Earlier today, the Trump administration brokered a historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Democrat presidential candidate and former Obama VP Joe Biden, attempted to take partial credit for the historic peace deal, saying he laid the groundwork for the agreement.
Biden praised the agreement, under which Israel and the UAE will achieve full normalization of relations. He promised that he and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would build on the deal if they are elected to office in November.

Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor to the president, Jared Kushner, who many consider a master negotiator for peace in the Middle East, spoke out about the historic peace deal between Israel and the UAE.
“I want to start today by congratulating the people of Israel and the people of the United Arab Emirates. Today is a historic breakthrough and a great day for peace,” Kushner said, adding, “I also want to congratulate Pres. Trump on this milestone.”
Kushner touted the significance of the deal “The last time we had an agreement like this in the region was in 1994 when Israel made an agreement with the kingdom Jordan which stopped aggression and helped bring about peace.” He explained, “When President Trump came into office, we had a caliphate for ISIS in the Middle East which was the size of Ohio. We had a lot of instability—Iran’s aggression was being felt all throughout the region. A lot of their proxies were very well funded and causing instability in Yemen and in Syria and in other places. And now, we’re in a position where we’ve been able to work with our allies. A lot of our allies have felt abandoned and President Trump’s been able to rebuild those relations.”

According to Christian Datoc, White House Correspondent for the Daily Caller, Kushner says the administration was brokering multiple agreements between Israel and other Arab countries but put them on pause to prioritize UAE — says he would expect an announcement of more deals before the election.

Of course, the mainstream media and members of the DC swamp will never give Jared Kushner or President Trump credit for the historic peace deal, but history will remember President Trump’s incredible achievements in the Middle East in less than 4 years as President of the United States.
The truth is, that when it comes to President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, they will forever be known for allowing ISIS to metastasize and flourish in the Middle East, for allowing the persecution of Christians in the Middle East, for the terror attack in Benghazi and the lies their administration told to cover up their amateur response to the attack, and for their secret, dirty dealings with Iran. Peace in the Middle East will not be what Americans think of when they recall the Obama-Biden years.
