Trump Says He’d Go In And ‘Do A Number’ On Middle East Countries That Are Persecuting Christians
President Trump recently spoke out about how he would react if he had solid evidence to support claims of persecution of Christians in Middle Eastern countries, noting that he would “do a number” on them.
Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:
“If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe.
Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The deal, finalized Thursday on a call between Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan, is predicated in part on Israel’s agreement to halt sovereignty claims temporarily over land sought by the Palestinians for a future state.
Trump went on in his speech to note that this particular peace deal is an important step toward making the Middle East a more hospitable place for Christians.
“It’s a very big part of the overall negotiation,” the president said. “And as countries come in — for instance, UAE has agreed very strongly to represent us; I think they will very well with respect to Christianity, because in the Middle East, it’s not treated well. It’s treated horribly and very unfairly, and it’s criminal what’s happened — and that’s for many, many years.”
This really is a very big deal. People have constantly said that Trump hasn’t accomplished much while he’s been in office, but that’s not even remotely true. He’s been able to broker a deal with North Korea. And now this one between the UAE and Israel.
The man knows what he is doing.
