The peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates marks only the most recent of the foreign policy achievements of President Donald Trump during his first term in office.
The significance of this treaty sets a record in the United States, which was even acknowledged by Washington Post foreign policy columnist David Ignatius.
Ignatius agreed with Trump when he said that it was a “HUGE” achievement, and agreed that this is the prelude to the agreements that Israel can make with other countries in the region such as Bahrain, Omar, and Morocco.
The fact that Trump was the first U.S. president to fly between Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia and Tel Aviv in Israel is a historic symbol for the executive vice president of Citizens for the Republic (CFTR), a conservative-based U.S. lobbying organization, Martha Boneta.
“He has defeated ISIS, moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and eliminated Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian major general whose Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and has punished Syria,” Boneta said.
He has also begun to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and Syria and announced that he would withdraw the troops stationed in Germany.
Additionally, Trump ended the considered harmful nuclear agreement with Iran and the climate agreements of Paris, and he withdrew from the World Health Organization (WHO).
He demanded that other NATO members increase their contributions, sanctioned the Chinese Communist Party on several fronts to limit its abuses of the U.S. economy and security, and punished its human rights abuses.
Summit meetings and talks held with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pacified the transcontinental missile tests that so troubled Japan and neighboring countries on the Korean Peninsula, Boneta also mentioned.
In the Americas, Trump signed a new trade agreement with Canada and Mexico, economically blocked the dictatorial regime of Nicolás Maduro, responsible for the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, and renewed ties with U.S. allies in Central and South America.
Likewise, the permanent action of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, consistently covers all the needs that foreign policy demands—good relations of the United States with its allies.
For all these achievements, most of them unprecedented, Trump sets a historic record for America in a well-managed foreign policy.
