The Israel-UAE Deal Proves That President Trump’s Foreign Policy is Working

The White House – August 20, 2020

“President Trump has so far been a remarkably successful foreign-policy president. His success lies in his ability to identify America’s national interest clearly and pursue it without regard to outdated ideological investments,” Daniel McCarthy writes in The American Conservative.
From China to Iran to the new Middle East deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, “Donald Trump can succeed where the others fail because he is transactional, not ideological, and he looks out for the American interest—which is peace through stability—rather than trying to bring about peace through perfection.”

Trump warns: ‘We’ll Protect America’s Suburbs’

The White House – August 17, 2020
“The crime and chaos in Democrat-run cities have gotten so bad that liberals are even getting out of Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Rather than rethink their destructive policies, the left wants to make sure there is no escape,” President Trump and Housing & Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson write in The Wall Street Journal.
“A once-unthinkable agenda, a relentless push for more high-density housing in single-family residential neighborhoods, has become the mainstream goal of the left.”

“On Thursday, President Trump closed a historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates . . . The agreement would not have been possible without the leadership of a president who refuses to do things the same old way just because ‘that’s how it has always been done,'” Senior Advisor Jared Kushner writes in The Washington Post.

This April, the Trump Administration “launched a historic counternarcotics operation to target drug traffickers and disrupt the flow of illicit drugs to the United States. The narco-traffickers targeted include members of the illegitimate, thuggish regime of Nicolás Maduro and the Cartel de los Soles (‘Cartel of the Suns’) in Venezuela,” National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien writes in the New York Post.

“Thursday’s announcement of a ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and the United Arab Emirates—the first deal to normalize relations between Israel and an Arab nation brokered by the U.S. in over a quarter-century—is more evidence that President Trump is the first president in a long time to get U.S. Middle East policy more right than wrong,” writes James Jay Carafano, a foreign policy expert at the Heritage Foundation.

Governors Can’t Use Coronavirus to Indefinitely Declare a State of Emergency
-The Federalist
“In a moment of national panic, Americans permitted their state and local executives to take power—to declare states of emergency and to implement lockdowns—and now those executives won’t give that power back,” Molly McCann writes. “Our current quandary is that governors are using COVID as an excuse to extend their authority indefinitely.”
