WASHINGTON – President Trump has beaten Joe Biden for attempting to seek recognition for his historic Israel-UAE peace deal after the Democratic candidate said the peace deal was due to “efforts by several administrations”.
“We worked very hard on that, and I see Sleepy Joe tried to get credit for it and I’m trying to figure out how that works,” Trump told reporters at a White House briefing with one of his favorite tauntings for his opponent .
The Trump administration announced Thursday that it brokered a historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates that will pave the way for a full normalization of relations between the two Middle Eastern countries.
Biden praised the “welcome, courageous and much-needed act of statecraft”
“The encounter between Israel and Arab states builds on efforts by several governments to promote wider Arab-Israeli openness, including efforts by the Obama-Biden administration to build on the Arab peace initiative,” he said.
But Trump on Friday tore up the Obama-Biden administration in its foreign policy record, particularly in its Iran policy, which included cash payments to the rogue nation.
“What he did is they did a terrible deal with Iran and the deal was a horror show and I ended it,” Trump said. “You didn’t get anything from this deal, except trouble. You didn’t do anything. “
“Just as they were weak against China, they were weak against Russia, they were weak against everyone, and they were the weakest against Iran,” he said.
Trump said the deal was made by his hardworking team, not Biden, and hit the former Veep’s mental edge.
“It was done by very talented people working with me and it was praised around the world,” said the president.
“What you are going to see now is that other countries are entering into this agreement and you will have peace in the Middle East, and Biden doesn’t even know, he doesn’t even know the names of the countries I’m talking about,” he said.
