At this point nobody should be surprised by Donald Trump’s relentless tsunami of lies. After racking up an insurmountable record of more than 30,000 false statements in four years, Trump continued to pour out flagrant falsehoods for months propounding his “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.
Nevertheless, the audacity with which he dishes out deceit is astounding. On Tuesday he put out a statement on his spanking new alternative social media site about the escalating violence between Israel and Gaza. Naturally, the comment served to advance the only things that are ever important to Trump: exalting himself and maligning his foes, particularly President Joe Biden. Trump wrote that…
“When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked. Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies. America must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the U.S. will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself. Unbelievably, Democrats also continue to stand by crazed anti-American Rep. Ilhan Omar, and others, who savagely attack Israel while they are under terrorist assault.”
The “Peace Presidency”? Really? The same one that incited a deadly insurrection in Washington, D.C., in order to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after his humiliating loss to Biden? You can hardly make a claim to peace after you tried to overthrow the U.S. government and threatened the lives of the people’s representatives in Congress.
However, more to his point, Trump appears to be suffering from a severe cognitive disorder. His criticism that “the world is getting more violent and more unstable because [of] Biden’s weakness” has no basis in reality. And Trump didn’t even bother to substantiate it. He simply lashed out with a hollow fury that proved only how deranged he is. And of course, he closed with a racist assault on Rep. Omar.
As for Trump’s tribute to his imaginary deterrence of Israel’s adversaries, his recollection is pitifully flawed. He implies that a threat of “swift retribution” kept the enemy at bay. But the truth is that there were numerous attacks on Israel throughout Trump’s term in office. Just last year…
February 6, 2020: “14 Israeli soldiers and cops wounded in attacks by Palestinian assailants, two Palestinian policemen killed by IDF, several clashes erupt amid tensions tied to Trump peace plan.”
And then there was…
September 15, 2020: “Palestinian militants fired rockets from Gaza into Israel on Tuesday, the Israeli military said, at same time as Israel and two Gulf Arab states signed normalization agreements at the White House in Washington.
“Warning sirens sounded in the coastal cities of Ashkelon and Ashdod as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Donald Trump met the foreign ministers of United Arab Emirates and Bahrain at the White House.”
In fact, there were multiple attacks on Israel by Palestinians militants every year of Trump’s presidency. And he did nothing in response. He often didn’t even comment, even though some of the violence was triggered by his actions, such as moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem.
When Trump did comment, it was always to condemn the Palestinians, even if their violence was in response to Israeli aggression. That is not how an effective diplomat deescalates conflict and brings warring factions together. To the contrary, it deepens the resolve of combatants.
Trump’s self-serving tribute for a “peace presidency” that only exists in his diseased mind is typical for someone with his psychotic maladies. And he’s determined to get others to believe his delusions. That’s just as evident in this comment on Israel as it is his promulgations of the “Big Lie,” or the size of his crowds, or length of his border wall, or value of his wealth, or any of the other myriad untruths he’s told.
