Editor’s note: We saw this post on X (formerly known as Twitter) and thought it worth reprinting here because it is an excellent summation of why elections matter and why those who think Donald Trump was the worst president ever might want to rethink that.
This was posted by Robert Greenway, who was the principal architect of the historic Abraham Accords under the Trump administration. Remember that every step he describes that Trump took was met with horror and anguish by elites and leftists alike who said it would lead to conflict.
We moved our embassy to Jerusalem. No war.
We withdrew from the JCPOA. No war.
We undertook the maximum economic pressure campaign and crippling, historic sanctions on Iran. No war and they stayed below 4% enrichment.
We recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. No war.
We eliminated Qassem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al Muhandis (and Abu Bakr al Baghdadi). No war.
The results? Iran isolated under crippling sanctions reducing their capacity to threaten the region, and historic peace brokered between Israel and its neighbors via the Abraham Accords.
Two years after Biden took office Iran is enriching over 60%, they’re two weeks from sufficient material for a nuclear weapon, Sudan fell into a civil war, and Israel just experienced the greatest loss of life in a single day since the holocaust. In seeking to avoid conflict, it is upon us.
By embracing our enemy and spurning our friends it will not be easily contained.
This should never have happened.
