'That was the Emiratis having the courage to tell their constituencies the truth'
President Joe Biden spent his first 100 days in office reversing and erasing as many of former President Donald Trump's policies as he could, and Trump's former ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, believes that was a "terrible mistake."
On the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Haley joined Glenn to discuss President Biden's "Trump reversals" and pointed out the one Trump victory that Biden can't erase — and the proof is playing out right now.
"He just reversed everything," Haley said of Biden. "But the part that he can't erase, and it's really a point of pride, I think, is the Abraham Accords, because this was an amazing thing. Many presidents before Trump had said that the only way to get peace in the Middle East was through the Palestinians. The president went to his first foreign policy speech, it was to the Arab Summit, and he said, 'I want us to unite against terrorism," meaning, translation, I want us to unite against Iran. He got the attention of the Arab countries. Then he started to acknowledge truths: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. We're going to have Israel's back. This is what Israel can do for you," she continued.
"I had a meeting, I and the British ambassador had a meeting with the Saudi and the Emirati ambassador, and they were complaining, you know, 'Why doesn't anybody call out the Houthis for the terrorist organization that they are? Why are they always hitting us?' And I stopped them and I said, 'You know, I could make the same case for Hamas and Israel.' We went on with the meeting, and they pulled me aside afterwards, and they said, 'We know you're right.' So I asked, 'Why do you hit Israel the way you do?' The Emirati said, 'We do it because we have to for our constituencies,' and I said, 'At some point you're going to have to have the courage to tell your constituencies the truth.' You fast-forward to the Abraham Accords, and that was the Emiratis having the courage to tell their constituencies the truth," Haley explained.
