President Trump is in the midst of a bitter fight over the preliminary results of a manipulated election, but despite the uphill struggle, he’s still working towards achieving the goals set forth at the beginning of his presidency.
Trump announced on Thursday that his diplomatic efforts have paid off once again, this time by brokering a deal in which Morocco will normalize relations with Israel.
Trump wrote in a series of tweets Thursday morning:
Today, I signed a proclamation recognizing Moroccan sovereignty over the Western Sahara. Morocco’s serious, credible, and realistic autonomy proposal is the ONLY basis for a just and lasting solution for enduring peace and prosperity!
Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Morocco have agreed to full diplomatic relations – a massive breakthrough for peace in the Middle East!
Morocco recognized the United States in 1777. It is thus fitting we recognize their sovereignty over the Western Sahara.
President Trump has long called for reconciliation in the Middle East, and has made some major strides towards that goal within the last year, brokering a number of historic peace deals heretofore unheard of.
According to the Hill, “Morocco now becomes the fourth Muslim-majority and Arab country to open ties with Israel, following diplomatic breakthroughs this year with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan brokered by the U.S.”
Morocco and Israel first severed diplomatic ties in 2000 during an outbreak of violence between Israel and Palestine which lead to the closing of mutual liaison offices in both countries.
According to the White House, the King of Morocco agreed to “resume diplomatic relations between Morocco and Israel and expand economic and cultural cooperation to advance regional stability.”
President Trump has brokered more peace deals than any other president in recent history, all the while avoiding plunging the nation into another foreign war — but the media refuses to acknowledge his role in the shocking succession of peace agreements once again.
