Friday, September 11, 2020 will mark the 19th Anniversary of the 9-11-2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Virginia, and the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

We view the commemoration of this day through the haze of a world rocked by the COVID-19 pandemic, but also with historic gains in the foreign policy that many on the Left feel were instrumental in fueling the terrorist’s actions.

Now, Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States, has helped to broker the first glimpses of peace in the Middle East in a century. Something that the Obama – Biden administration, with all its apologizing and pandering to radical interests, failed to do.

The Times Union-Tribune reports,

“The United States will pull thousands of troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan by November, the top American commander for the Middle East said Wednesday, as President Donald Trump tries to make good on his campaign promise to get America out of  ‘endless wars.'”

The White House also announced that President Trump will host the Israel-UAE Deal Signing Ceremony on September 15, with Prime Minister Netanyahu and His Highness Sheik  Abdulla bin Zayed slated to attend the official ceremony.

White House officials stated on August 13 that negotiations included 18 months of talks leading to the Gulf state agreeing to normalize relations with Israel. For their part, Israel agreed to continue with plans to suspend its annexation of the West Bank.

And lastly, Serbia and Kosovo, both part of the former Yugoslavia, are also ending more than two decades of bitterness and antagonism with each other. The two countries signed an “economic relations” deal brokered by President Trump. Alluding to the UAE-Israel rapprochement, President Trump claimed the agreement had created another “normalization” between two warring nations.

“It has taken tremendous bravery by (President Aleksandar Vucic) of Serbia and (Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti) of Kosovo to embark on these talks and to come to Washington to finalize these commitments,” Trump said.
“By doing so, they have made their countries, the Balkans, and the world safer. I look forward to seeing Serbia and Kosovo prosper as we work together on economic cooperation in the region going forward.”
