Trump news: President heralds ‘new Middle East’ and warns Palestine to ‘respect US’ as Israel peace treaty signed at White House

“This can lead to peace, real peace, in the Middle East,” the president told reporters in the White House, adding: “You can have peace without blood in the sand.”  

Earlier in the day, the president gave a wild interview to Fox and Friends in which he claimed to have considered having Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad assassinated two years ago and accused Democratic rival Joe Biden of “taking something to give him clarity”.  

He also attacked revered Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein during the call with the network’s morning show, dismissing the former’s latest book on his presidency as “boring”

US president Donald Trump (AP) Donald Trump claimed his “landmark deals” were capable of achieving “real peace” in the Middle East during a historic signing ceremony at the White House on Tuesday that featured the leaders of Israel and two Golf Arab nations.

“This can lead to peace, real peace, in the Middle East,” the president told reporters in the White House, adding: “You can have peace without blood in the sand.”  

Earlier in the day, the president gave a wild interview to Fox and Friends in which he claimed to have considered having Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad assassinated two years ago and accused Democratic rival Joe Biden of “taking something to give him clarity”.  

He also attacked revered Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein during the call with the network’s morning show, dismissing the former’s latest book on his presidency as “boring”.

While Mr Bernstein said Mr Trump was using loyal supporters as ‘sacrificial lambs’, Mr Woodward dismissed claims separate audio recordings would show Jared Kushner misquoted as saying former Trump administration members were “overconfident idiots”.

After the Biden campaign outraised the president in August, his reelection campaign said it was ramping up spending in battleground states to combat a resurgent Democrat campaign funded by billionaire Mike Bloomberg.
