Trump announces that Israel and Sudan have agreed to normalize relations

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) President Donald Trump announced Friday that Sudan and Israel have agreed to normalize relations -- a foreign policy achievement for the incumbent president less than two weeks before the US presidential election.

"President @realDonaldTrump has announced that Sudan and Israel have agreed to the normalization of relations— another major step toward building peace in the Middle East with another nation joining the Abraham Accords," White House spokesperson Judd Deere said on Twitter.

It is unclear if the deal establishes full diplomatic relations between the two nations.

His announcement came shortly after the White House said he had informed Congress of his intent to remove Sudan from the state sponsor of terrorism list. The rescission of the 27-year old designation was widely seen as being tied to the deal with Israel, despite Khartoum's desire to keep the issues separate.

3. 99.99% of the voters don't give a shit about Sudan's diplomatic relations.

Hell, most Trump voters couldn't even find the Continent of Africa on the globe, much less Sudan.

16. Fantastic.

This is good news, but in the grand scheme, it has little to do with him, his administration, or the overall security of the US, so this is good news, but wholly uneventful in American politics.
