This past weekend, the president met with Saudi King Salman. While there, the president and king managed to reach a deal that would help the U.S. economically, having sold $110B worth of weapons, and would help Saudi Arabia in their fight against terrorism and the threat of Iran. Due to that deal, King Salman awarded the president with the kingdom’s highest medal of honor award for his efforts to “strengthen the relationship between the two friendly countries” and continuing to “enhance security and peace.”
It’s clear here that the king of Saudi Arabia and the Saudis in general are showing far more respect to Trump than they ever did to Obama. Of course, I don’t blame them for showing less respect to Obama. The former president made sure to BOW to the king, a sign of weakness and submission. A sign that warrants no respect from anyone.
Even Trump said on Twitter back in 2012 “Barack Obama bowed to the Saudi King in public – yet the Dems are questioning Mitt Romney’s diplomatic skills.” While I’ll ignore the part about the 'never-trumper'/traitor’s questioned diplomatic skills, we have to acknowledge the fact that Obama’s bowing to the Saudi king is a sign of poor diplomatic skills. And the media hasn’t forgotten about that either (though, they largely tried to ignore it at the time).
The media, being the biggest source of fake news around, said that Trump is being hypocritical for bowing to King Salman upon receiving the aforementioned medal of honor. I gotta tell you, this is the easiest story to swat back at them. Largely due to the fact that Trump is significantly taller than King Salman, so in order to help the king give him the award, he had to bend over a bit to receive the honor. But the media wants a negative story on Trump so badly that they are scraping the bottom of the barrel and pretty much nitpicking at things the president does.
But here’s the thing: the media can't come up with any negative stories (at least, ones that stick). The media had been touting how Trump is a massive fool and would destroy relations with any country he meets with. The president has even taken action, having signed a deal that would be mutually beneficial, and yet, the media can’t spin anything against Trump? Why is that?
It’s because, while Trump is here at home, doing things to help this country, the media can spin them as disastrous. They can say that the vast majority of people want Trump impeached or never wanted him in the White House to begin with. But they can’t put words into another country’s mouths. They can’t claim that the Saudi king or people think anything badly of the president. Their own media get to decide what is said, and the Saudis largely LOVED having the president over. And it’s not just the president that accomplished things there, the First Lady and Ivanka Trump accompanied the president on this trip and made strides to help women in the kingdom. Granted, this being a Muslim country, I don’t know how far these efforts will get, but the two were certainly well received by the female population of the country.
The media in the U.S. wish to nitpick every little thing that occurs on this trip. And that’s all they’ve managed to do. The Washington Post wrote a story on how Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia is “bizarre and un-American”. Here are some of the points they’ve nitpicked on:
Firstly, while it is true that previous presidents usually have their first trip abroad to either of America’s neighbors (Canada or Mexico), Trump doesn’t want to waste time. He wants to ensure that terrorism is dealt with altogether and relations between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are strengthened.
Secondly, while Saudi Arabia is ok with some Islamist extremists (of course they are, they themselves are Muslim), they hate Iran and the terrorist organizations Iran funds..
Thirdly, the “sword dance” is, like I explained, a dance to commemorate the beginning of a notable occasion. The one in this case would be the strengthening of relations between our two countries. And while it is male only, it’s a part of their culture. A larger point being: since when does the Left have any complaints about Muslim tradition and culture?! Which leads me to my next point of emphasis:
Fourth, why would the media complain about Ivanka trying to help women in Saudi Arabia become entrepreneurs? Granted, this being a Muslim country, women hardly have any rights. Even the Washington Post points out that women can’t show their faces or “travel without the permission of male guardians.” But to repeat myself: Since when does the Left or the media altogether care about women in the Middle East? They didn’t complain when Obama went there. In fact, they made sure to avoid talking about that at all while Obama was there. So why care now?
Fifth, why is Tillerson talking about human rights in Iran considered a bad thing? All the media had to say about it is that it’s hypocritical. Even though it’s the Left that promotes gay rights here in the U.S. but flat out ignores the fact that gay people are horrendously tortured and killed simply for their sexual orientation. Talk about hypocrisy.
Lastly, of course Tillerson won’t allow the U.S. media in the press conference. The media is full of LIARS! They will attempt to make a mockery of Tillerson in such a conference and disrupt what the president is trying to accomplish in the region.
And finally, here’s my main point: Trump in a single trip has managed to accomplish more for this country than Obama did in 8 years. I’m not just talking about making the country $110B richer from one deal. I’m also talking about one of the things Trump promised during the campaign trail: that America would be respected again. He’s certainly making strides to accomplishing just that, and for that, we must truly be thankful to God that we don’t have Hillary as president and that we no longer have Obama as president either.
