President Donald Trump has announced a historic peace deal between Israel and Bahrain, the second deal he has made this year in the region.
The president announced the deal in a press conference in the Oval Office.
“This is really something special, very, very special,” President Trump said, claiming the Middle East “will become more secure and prosperous” because of the deal.
“The sand was loaded up with blood, and now you’ll see a lot of that sand will be loaded up with peace,” he continued.
In the joint statement released by President Trump, Bahrain, and Israel, it noted the deal was a “historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East.”
“Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region,” the statement expounds.

There have been only four peace deals between Israel and Arab nations during the entire history of Israel, and two of them have happened under President Trump: A historic achievement.
This is only the fourth Israel-Arab peace deal since Israel's conception in 1948.
Egypt – 1979
Jordan – 1994
UAE – 2020
Bahrain – 2020 https://t.co/uYB54UJEWj

The previous deal that President Trump organized was between the UAE and Israel, which was announced under a month ago, back in August. Jared Kushner highlighted this in a call with reporters, saying it is a sign the region is changing.
“We’re seeing the beginning of a new Middle East and the president has really secured alliances and partners in trying to pursue that,” he said.
It’s probably no surprise, therefore, that President Trump has received a second nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. A member of the Swedish Parliament nominated the president along with the governments of Serbia and Kosovo for their deal that was signed only last week.

Despite these incredible foreign policy successes in pushing peace all across the globe, I have very serious doubts that President Trump will win the Nobel Peace Prize, because the liberals and globalists simply don’t want him to! Good old Barry O. received his, while drone bombing innocent people all across the Middle East, because he was a globalist, and for no other reason than that.
But hey, stranger things have happened!
