(ConservativeUnit.com)- White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany slammed members of the press during a briefing at the White House on Wednesday for ignoring the historic Middle Eastern peace deals negotiated by the Trump administration. McEnany noted how journalists were purposely ignoring the story and displaying double standards.
When asked about a personnel issue, McEnany responded, “I’m not going to weigh in on any personnel matters, but what I will weigh into is the Middle East peace deal signed yesterday that I did not receive a single question about.”
President Donald Trump held a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday with the leaders of Israel, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. It marked the beginning of new relationships between the two Arab countries and Israel, and the normalisation of diplomacy and travel between them. The nations previously did not recognize the state of Israel but will do from now on, and even allow direct flights between the two countries.
It’s a deal that people thought never could be done, but came about as a result of the Israel-Palestine peace plan put forward by the Trump administration in January. The plan resulted in Israel making some concessions on the West Bank, which allowed the peace deals to move forward.
“That was the first time it’s happened in a quarter of a century,” McEnany said in reference to the last peace deal made in the region between Jordan and Israel in 1994. “If Obama and Biden had achieved this, it would look a lot different.”
McEnany said that Chuck Todd wouldn’t be saying he was “uncomfortable” and Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi would not be calling it a “distraction.”
In a recent interview, Pelosi brushed off the historic deal as a “distraction” and began talking about how COVID-19 deaths are increasing. Which they are, of course, but her argument seems to suggest President Trump should be reversing the deaths…which he can’t do.
What he can do, though, is negotiate historic peace deals between Israel and Arab nations. But the press doesn’t want to talk about that.
This week, President Trump also said that as many as nine other nations may soon follow suit, including Saudi Arabia.
