Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 24, 2020

Leave it to Donald Trump to turn the celebration of a Middle East peace plan into an act of aggression against Joe Biden.

On Friday, the president announced that Sudan has agreed to normalize ties with Israel, making it the third Arab state to reach such a U.S.-brokered deal in the last few months, according to the Associated Press.

Although it's a legitimate foreign policy achievement, Trump tried to use the occasion to get Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to trash his Democratic rival.

But Bibi didn't take the bait, probably recognizing that insulting the possible future president wasn't a very statesmanlike thing to do:

Trump: "Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal, Bibi, Sleepy Joe? Do you think he would have made this deal? Somehow I don't think so."

Netanyahu: "Uh ... well ... Mr. President, one thing I can tell you is we appreciate the help for peace from anyone in America."

Sudan was threatened with sanctions and loss of diplomatic recognition if they didn't "normalize" relations with Israel. The arm twisting was heavy to achieve this result.

The Sudanese did this under extreme duress.

This is a meaningless empty gesture.

When Trump leaves office this will disappear, like magic.

Just watch.

Bibi is as corrupt a p.o.s. as Trump, but he is smooth and knows that he will need to work closely with a Biden administration.
