No wonder he’s received so many Nobel Peace Prize Nominations…
President Trump has announced that Sudan will begin normalizing relations with Israel—the third Arab nation to do so in recent months.
The deal, which would deepen Sudan’s engagement with the West, follows Trump’s conditional agreement this week to remove the North African nation from the list of state sponsors of terrorism if it pays compensation to American victims of terror attacks.
It also delivers a foreign policy achievement for Trump just days before the U.S. election and boosts his embattled ally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Recently, the United States brokered diplomatic pacts between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Jordan recognized Israel in the 1990s.
According to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, Sudan transferred $335 million into an escrow account for the victims of the 1998 attacks on the US embassies in Tanzania and Kenya, the terror attack on the U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer, the USS Cole, and the 2008 murder of a USAID employee in Khartoum.
“Today represents a momentous step forward in the United States-Sudan bilateral relationship and marks a pivotal turning point for Sudan, allowing for a new future of collaboration and support for its ongoing and historic democratic transition,” said McEnany.
President Trump invited journalists into the Oval Office during his phone call with the leaders of Israel and Sudan.
“This is one of the great days in the history of Sudan,” Trump said.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “It is a new world. We are cooperating with everyone. Building a better future for all of us.”

A WHOPPING 56% of Americans Say They are Better off Today (Mid-Pandemic) than Under Obama-Biden
A recent Gallup survey found that a whopping 56 percent of Americans say they are better off now under President Trump–in the middle of a pandemic–than they were four years ago when President Obama was in office.
During his presidential campaign in 1980, Ronald Reagan asked Americans, “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” Since then, this question has served as a key standard that sitting presidents running for reelection have been held to.
Gallup’s most recent survey found a clear majority of registered voters (56%) saying they are better off now than they were four years ago, while 32% said they are worse off.
The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!

Gallup compared the 56 percent number to 2012, during the Obama-Biden Administration when just 45 percent of Americans could say they felt they were better off. In 2004, 47 percent of Americans said they were better off and in 1992, that number was at 38 percent.
President Trump responded to the news, writing on Twitter, “The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (Biden). The highest number on record! Pretty amazing!”
EPIC: Trump Fans Take Over NYC’s Fifth Ave in Show of Support for POTUS
Over 100 vehicles rolled into Manhattan yesterday morning, halting traffic for at least 30 minutes as they drove by Trump Tower in a show of support for President Donald Trump as he recovers from the coronavirus.
The drivers blasted their horns and waved flags while chanting “four more years!”
The group also stopped for a moment of silence to pray for the president, who was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week.

According to the New York Post, members of the group, “The Long Island Loud Majority” woke up around 4 a.m. yesterday to head to the city:
“I felt the love and energy today,” the 28-year-old Trump supporter from Farmingdale told The Post of the “prayer vigil” for POTUS and FLOTUS.
“Today the energy was electric. It was amazing — no chaos, no [middle] fingers, no drama, just supporting our president and our [men and women in] blue,” she said.
Hahnan said being at Trump Tower felt “sentimental” because “we were praying for him.”
“I’m praying for every single person in this world … including President Trump, the first lady and the whole administration,” she said.
“I pray that my country comes together because we are divided right now. We should be standing together praying for our president and our first lady. He is still a human being. He is 74 years old,” she said, noting how his age put him in the high-risk group for the disease.
Supporters have also been gathering outside of Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where President Trump is currently recovering from his diagnosis. The president has sent those supporters chocolates, pizza, and even did a drive-by yesterday to thank them for their support.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said the president’s health continued to improve overnight and that he is “optimistic” President Trump will return to the White House later today.
“Spoke to the president this morning,” Meadows said. “He continued to improve overnight and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule.”
