Trump’s Impressive Foreign Policy Successes

Middle East agreements, USMCA, China’s trade abuses, and NATO obligations are a few.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump announced his latest foreign policy success as he noted that Sudan and Israel had agreed to a deal to normalize relations. This marks the third Muslim-majority country (the other two being the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain) that Trump has helped in brokering a peace deal with Israel. Critics like John Kerry have long declared this impossible. Now, though, what many Americans may have believed they would never live to see may quickly be becoming a reality — peace in the Middle East.

So impressive have Trump’s foreign policy decisions been — he’s now been nominated four times for a Nobel Peace Prize — that it’s truly sad much of the American public is essentially missing one of the most seminal moments in recent history. And for that, you can thank the mainstream media that’s so dedicated to seeing Trump removed from office.

In Europe, Trump has been successful in challenging and getting more NATO allies to meet their pledged obligations of spending 2% of their GDP on defense.

Trump has also made progress in his efforts to confront China’s trade abuse. While many conservatives have disagreed with his tariff approach, there is little disagreement that Trump’s confrontation with China was needed and has produced results. And unlike what Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats contend, China more so than Russia represents the greatest geopolitical threat to the U.S.

Finally, Trump’s reworking and updating of the North America Free Trade Agreement, now known as the USMCA, both fulfills a campaign promise and works to bring more jobs back into the country, expanding the American manufacturing sector while increasing agricultural exports.

Trump may have come into office as a boasting businessman with little foreign policy experience, and we don’t wish to overstate his accomplishments. But the president has made substantial progress in advancing America’s interests around the world. Can Joe Biden, the man who former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said has been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades,” really be an improvement?
