‘HUGE win’: Trump lands Middle East peace agreement with Sudan, third in weeks

“This is one of the great days in the history of Sudan”

President Trump has done it again. 

Not once, not twice, but three times.

Sudan will no longer be a name on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list and will begin diplomatic relations with the United States and Israel, the president announced on Friday. 

“HUGE win today for the United States and for peace in the world. Sudan has agreed to a peace and normalization agreement with Israel! With the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, that’s THREE Arab countries to have done so in only a matter of weeks. More will follow!” he tweeted.

The Sudan agreement comes just weeks after Trump secured two other historic Middle East peace deals – The Abraham Accords with Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates – which established full diplomatic relations between the countries and Israel, according to The Federalist. 

These peace deals facilitated by the Trump Administration are meant to bring “stability, security and prosperity” in the region. 

“This will improve regional security and unlock new opportunities for the people of Sudan, Israel, the Middle East, and Africa,” the joint statement released by the White House said. 

Trump agreed to remove Sudan from the terrorism list after the nation paid $335 million in compensation to American victims of past terror attacks and their families. 

And, removal from the list allows the country to access international aid and financial loans. 

According to the statement, Sudanese Chairman of the Sovereignty Council Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahi joined President Trump to “discuss Sudan’s historic progress towards democracy and opportunities to advance peace in the region.” 

Clearly the conversation went well. 

“This is one of the great days in the history of Sudan,” Trump said, noting that Israel and Sudan have been at war for decades. 

Israel and Sudan have also agreed to begin trade and cooperation negotiations with each other, and will work together on forging “peace in the region.” 

While Sudan previously lived under a “brutal dictatorship,” the statement affirms that the country has recently seen significant progress in “combatting terrorism, building its democratic institutions and improving its relations with its neighbors.” 

The hard work paid off, granting the nation the opportunity to work alongside the U.S. to “restore Sudan’s sovereign immunity and to engage its international partners to reduce Sudan’s debt burdens.” 

But this won’t be the last of the peace deals. 

Trump intends to continue negotiating deals with other Middle Eastern nations, saying there are at least five others, including Saudi Arabia, that want a piece of the president’s peace, The Federalist reports.

    Have you actually read a Koran? The only thing that is happening here is that Muslims are lining for handouts. Trusting Muslims is a 1400 year-old proven cultural suicide. Do you think you know more about Islam than this guy? https://www.memri.org/tv/kuwaiti-imam-naji-kharas-permanent-agreements-jews-null-void-abolish-jihad. These deals only empower the enemy.

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

shoplifter

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
