What Does The UAE-Israel Deal Mean For Trump?

On Thursday, Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) agreed to a peace deal. The deal aims to normalize diplomatic relations between Israel and the UAE. Under the agreement, Israel agreed to suspend plans for the annexation of the West Bank. The deal wasn't possible if the United States had not brokered it.


This is President Trump's first and much needed foreign policy win. Trump has done something that the previous three presidents tried and failed. This gives Trump an advantage in the upcoming presidential election which is less than three months away. It is likely that a much bigger deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel will be announced closer to the American election.
