The disastrous media has clearly declared war on President Donald Trump and will go to great lengths to paint him in an unflattering light.
President Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss shaking up the Middle East in peace negotiations and ISIS recently.
The media painted this picture of uncertainty and awkwardness between Trump and Netanyahu, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Anyone can go and watch the joint press conference and clearly see that the MSM was just making stuff up.
Trump and Netanyahu’s meeting was an enormous success and a big step forward in finally bringing peace to the Middle East, instead of the political know-it-all condescension from Obama that clearly divided the region and affected the U.S.-Israel relationship.
The Washington Times reported:
The jovial exchanges between the two leaders, who call themselves longtime friends, and their shared tough stance against Iran and Islamic State terrorists immediately repaired years of damaged relations between the Obama administration and Israel.
Mr. Trump brought his deal-making prowess to the peace process. He told Mr. Netanyahu that he must make compromises and should delay new settlements in the occupied territories, a prickly political issue at home for the prime minister.
Mr. Netanyahu also lauded Mr. Trump’s leadership in the global fight against radical Islamic terrorism.“Under your leadership, I believe we can reverse the rising tide of radical Islam,” he told the president. He said Mr. Trump showed “great courage in confronting this threat head-on.”
“The context, contents and visuals of the welcoming and the press conference were exactly the opposite of the first meeting between Netanyahu and Obama,” said Mr. Gilboa, an analyst of Israeli-U.S. relations.
“The two leaders praised each other and committed to upgrade the U.S.-Israel alliance. Trump is friendlier toward Israel than Obama.”
The Washington Times concluded:
At the White House, Mr. Netanyahu followed the president’s lead.
He said that, to achieve peace, the onus remained on the Palestinians to recognize the Jewish state’s right to exist and give Israel security control over all territory west of the Jordan River.
Mr. Trump said that brokering a Middle East peace deal was important to him personally.
Asked by a reporter about Israeli settlement on occupied Palestinian territory, Mr. Trump nodded to the prime minister: “I’d like to see you hold back a little bit.”
At home, Mr. Netanyahu has been under political pressure to expand settlements after a court-ordered shutdown of some Israeli encampments.
Mr. Trump said both sides would have to compromise to achieve a peace deal.
“Bibi and I’ve known each other a long time,” said Mr. Trump, using Mr. Netanyahu’s nickname.
“Smart man, great negotiator, and I think we’re going to make a deal. It might be a bigger and better deal than people in this room even understand.”
Mr. Netanyahu began to speak but hesitated.
“Doesn’t sound too optimistic,” said Mr. Trump, “But good negotiator.”
“That’s the art of the deal,” responded Mr. Netanyahu, eliciting laughs from the audience. The exchange highlighted the chemistry between the two leaders.
Why exactly did Trump specifically choose the title of his 1987 #1 best seller The Art of the Deal? Could it be a direct homage to Sun Tzu’s 2,500-year-old masterpiece on warfare tactics, Art of War?
After all, you can pinpoint exact tactics in Art of War that Donald Trump utilized during his presidential campaign to defeat the Republican candidates and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Republicans, Democrats and the media consistently underestimated him and Trump easily divided and conquered all three factions by using their own inadequacies and distrust against them. “Never underestimate your enemy.”
All Trump had to do was use “Patience, Positioning and Timing,” and allow them to destroy themselves so he could split the sea like Moses to the presidency.
So here we are only 3 weeks into the Trump administration, and the president is laying groundwork for something that no president before him could do – peace in the Middle East – and he’s utilizing one thing that Obama never had – knowledge.
