PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP HAS BROKERED A HISTORIC DEAL BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE KINGDOM OF BAHRAIN
“Now that the ice has been broken, I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates’ lead.” – President Donald J. Trump
SECURING ANOTHER HISTORIC AGREEMENT: President Donald J. Trump has brokered a deal to establish full diplomatic relations between Bahrain and Israel – the second such agreement between Israel and an Arab nation in less than one month.
- Israel and Bahrain have committed to begin the exchange of embassies and ambassadors, start direct flights between their countries, and launch cooperation initiatives across a broad range of sectors.
- This peace deal is a significant step forward for both Israel and Bahrain.
+ It further enhances their security while creating opportunities for them to deepen their economic ties.
- This deal comes on the heels of the historic normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
+ The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are the first Arab nations to normalize relations with Israel in more than 25 years.
- The United States will continue to support the people of Bahrain as they work to counter terrorism and extremism, develop economically, and build new peaceful partnerships across the region.
WOW. An unqualified success, an unlooked-for leap forward, an undeniable boon for all mankind. Now tell me again all about how Trump has done nothing, achieved nothing, whydon’tcha.
During his first term, that would be.
