WASHINGTON, DC- Not that President Trump will lose sleep over it, but Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is not about to give him credit for anything. The president could literally find the cure for cancer and Pelosi and the Democrats would criticize him for it or suddenly be against a cure for cancer.
The latter is not too far fetched since Democrats, who have repeatedly criticized Trump for his coronavirus response, are now criticizing him for saying a vaccine may be only months away.
On Friday, Pelosi was being interviewed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, who asked:
“How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?”
“Well, hopefully they won’t—hopefully they will be beneficial [sic] to the region” the freshly coiffed Speaker of the House said, making a Freudian slip in the process.
“We’ve been waiting for a very long time for the president’s proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement that honored the two-state solution. It was coming in two weeks, it was coming in two months, it was coming in six months—it still hasn’t come in any way that brought peace.”

“So, good for him for having a distraction on a day when the numbers of people who are affected and the numbers or people who are dying from this virus only increases,’ Pelosi stated.
Pelosi is clearly a sick individual.
Recall a couple of weeks ago, when Pelosi busted San Francisco’s order on closing hair salons when she called to get her hair washed and blow dried.
After getting caught, instead of simply admitting that she had used bad judgment, she said she was “set up” and demanded an apology from the owner of the salon. What’s the saying? Power corrupts—absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Pelosi, who couldn’t get nominated for head janitor for an outhouse, must be jealous that the president was nominated multiple times for the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his efforts to secure peace agreements in various regions.
In the most recent case, the president was able to garner a peace deal between Israel and Bahrain. In a press release, the White House announced that the two countries had established full diplomatic relations. A few weeks ago, the president was able to get such a deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The current deal will see Israel and Bahrain exchanging embassies and ambassadors, start direct flights between the two countries, and engage a number of initiatives across multiple sectors in both countries.
The White House said that the deal will enhance the national security of both nations, while enabling them to deepen their economic ties with each other.

The two deals with Israel mean that the UAE and Bahrain were the first Arab nations to normalize relations with Israel in over 25 years.
The United States agreed to support Bahrain in their fight against terrorism and extremism in the region, help them to develop economically, and hopefully build new peaceful partnerships in the region.
The White House release continued that when President Trump took office, the Middle East “was in a state of extreme turmoil.”
To that end, the president worked to “rebuild trust with our regional partners and identify their shared interests, moving them away from the conflicts of the past.”
Trump’s experience as outlined in his book “The Art of the Deal,” showed his acumen at negotiating deals between two former adversaries and helping to buy into his vision in the region.
It is hoped that the deal with the two countries will encourage other Arab states to seek normal relations with Israel, thereby gaining stabilization in an area that has been fraught with turmoil for decades.
The deal also will, the White House says, “help to advance President Trump’s vision for finding a fair and lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians.”
Pelosi’s comments did not go unnoticed in conservative leaning media, as reported by BizPacReview. Even normally neutral straight news reporters such as Bret Baier of Fox News weighed in on her comments, saying:
“This is quite an answer. No matter your party—and even if you don’t like all the details inside—the UAE and Bahrain peace deals with Israel are not “distractions.”

Geraldo Rivera commented:
“Can Democrats join Republicans to congratulate @realDonaldTrump on the peace deals between Israel, the UAE & now Bahrain. Plus, between Kosovo & Serbia. Credit where credit is due, no?”

The outlet also noted that where it concerns Israel and the Palestinians, Pelosi had rejected a Trump administration proposal earlier this year because the Palestinians are looking for all of Jerusalem, which is the historic capital of Israel for Jews.
When the proposal was announced, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said, “We rejected this deal from the start and our stance was correct.”
However some media pundits acknowledged the significance of the peace deals negotiated by the Trump administration.
“There was a time not too long ago when, if any US president had brokered peace deals between Israel and UAE, Israel and Bahrain, and Serbia and Kosovo, the news would have been plastered with the news for days upon end,” said investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson in a tweet last Friday.

Leaders around the world, however have commended President Trump’s efforts, with Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde saying last week, “As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity.”
Tybring-Gjedde, who nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize, said:
“Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States an international armed conflict.” He noted that he is not a fan of the president, but that people needed to look beyond their personal opinion of Trump.
“The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts—not on the way he behaves sometimes,” he said.

The president was also recognized for his work on the negotiations with Kosovo and Serbia, with Magnus Jacobsson, a Swedish parliamentarian, submitting the president for the Nobel Peace Prize.
I have nominated the U.S. Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House. Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” he wrote.
