White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Wednesday slammed the media for not asking questions about the historic peace deal President Trump brokered between Israel and the Arab nations of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
At a press briefing at the White House, McEnany got irked when she was asked about a personal matter and gave this curt reply, “I’m not going to weigh in on any personnel matters, but what I will weigh into is the Middle East peace deal signed yesterday that I did not receive a single question about.”
McEnany continued, “That was the first time it’s happened in a quarter of a century. If Obama and Biden had achieved this, it would look a lot different. You wouldn’t have Chuck Todd saying he’s ‘uncomfortable’ with the deal that brings peace between the United Arab Emirates and Israel and Bahrain; you wouldn’t have CBS calling it a ‘business deal,’ and you wouldn’t have Nancy Pelosi calling it a ‘distraction.’ Maybe it’s a distraction from her visits to the hair salon, but those were significant agreements. First time in a quarter of a century; three peace deals in 29 days; it took 26 years for the prior two peace deals.”
McEnany concluded by saying, “The Nobel Peace Prize nomination for the president, two of them: very well-deserved.”
President Trump has been nominated by a member of the Swedish Parliament for his work on the Kosovo and Serbia peace deal. The first nomination was from Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, for his work in securing the peace deal between Israel and the UAE.
