During a Friday interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) vented her frustration when responding to the news that President Trump secured another historic peace deal in the Middle East, calling it a “distraction”.
The Commander in Chief announced on Twitter Friday, “Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!”
President Donald Trump also released a “joint statement of the United States, the Kingdom of Bahrain, and the State of Israel”.

“How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?” Wolf Blitzer directly asked Nancy Pelosi on Friday.
“Well, hopefully they won’t–hopefully they will be beneficial to the region,” Pelosi responded. “We’ve been waiting for a very long time for the president’s proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement that honored the two-state solution. It was coming in two weeks, it was coming in two months, it was coming in six months, it still hasn’t come in any way that has brought peace.”
“So, good for him for having a distraction on a day when the numbers of people who are affected and the numbers of people who are dying from this virus only increases,” Pelosi said, venting her frustration. Video Below

President Trump has been recently nominated twice for a Nobel Peace Prize because of his efforts in securing these peace deals. According to the New York Post, Trump “has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a second time this week — this time for brokering a historic peace deal between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo… The deal came on the heels of another agreement brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates — the first normalization of relations between Israel and an Arab nation in decades,” Kerry Picket reported.
