Hogan Gidley Blasts John Kerry For ‘Pretending’ Middle East Peace Couldn’t Be Achieved

On Thursday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show,” Donald J. Trump 2020 Campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley slammed former Secretary of State John Kerry for not only doubting any chance for peace in the Middle East, but for also kneeling to America’s adversaries in the region.

In a 2016 speech that recently resurfaced after President Donald Trump this week signed a historic peace accord between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, Kerry said that “there will be no separate peace between Israel and the Arab world.”

“I’ve heard several prominent politicians in Israel sometimes saying ‘well, the Arab world’s in a different place now, we just have to reach out to them and we could work somethings with the Arab world and deal with the Palestinians.’ No, no, no, and no,” Kerry explained.

Kerry’s statement didn’t pan out to be true after the President signed the accord this week and signaled that more and more countries would follow with similar peace deals. And Gidley said it certainly didn’t age well.

“Listen, it’s so funny to listen to him speak,” Gidley said. “Because he that’s one of those speeches. It’s not gonna age. Well, that clip’s not gonna help anybody. But at the same time, look, I’m not taking foreign policy lessons from someone who propped up the Iran deal that paved the way for Iran to get a nuclear weapon. I’m sure not going to take a lecture from somebody who gave a ran billions of dollars in cash, and then admitted that money would probably be used against America in terrorist attacks.”

He added, “So forgive me, if I wasn’t falling all over that speech in the clip you just played in which he tried to pretend as though something like this could never be done, and only his way would make it work. It’s obvious the President understands the politics over there better than most. It’s obvious. The President understands how to come to some type of peace agreement. He’s the one who got it done.”

Further, Gidley explained how President Trump was the outsider who brought a new thinking to Washington that shook up the political establishment, which Kerry and many Obama administration officials were a part of.

“And these folks who’ve been in office forever, and are trying to push the conventional wisdom and conventional methods on to solving problems that they haven’t been able to solve for years. just proves the point. You need somebody who’s an outsider, who’s an underdog, who gets the global picture, who gets people and how to make these deals happen that no one thought possible. That’s Donald Trump. He’s done it every single time. And John Kerry has failed every single time.”
