During a dialogue on Wednesday highlighting the ABC News city corridor that featured Trump, McCain pointed to his reference to the Abraham Accords that have been signed on the White House earlier within the day.
“I wish this was getting more attention and credit,” McCain advised her co-hosts. “I know that it’s hard to give any wins to the Trump administration, but I always try to be fair and call balls and strikes like we see it. You’re seeing a total geopolitical realignment in the Middle East against Iran and for Israel. And there’s rumors that Saudi Arabia could be joining.”
The sole conservative voice on the ABC daytime speak present referred to as the White House ceremony commemorating the settlement a “really big day.”
“For all the hubris and sort of baloney that we’ve seen blown around in this administration about bringing peace in the Middle East, this really is a huge step,” McCain continued. “And I saw President Trump talk about it and was really pleased yesterday. And this is getting very little attention in the scheme of things for just how big it is. And I just wish that we could… just take a moment and really appreciate the fact that there’s going to be embassies for Israel in Middle Eastern countries right now and it really is an amazing step forward for peace in the Middle East and for any pro-Israel American, it was a really big day.”
Much of the media tried to downplay the Israel-UAE-Bahrain settlement. NBC News chief international affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell insisted that the Abraham Accords do not quantity to “Middle East peace.”
CNN spent a lot of its programming centered on the potential well being dangers of the White House occasion that was held to commemorate the accords amid the pandemic.
The anti-Trump community shamed the Trump administration for the “large crowd” and “little social distancing” that occurred, suggesting that the occasion may very well be a brilliant spreader of the coronavirus.
