Geraldo Rivera Thinks Foreign Policy Is As Easy As Trump’s Real Estate Deals (VIDEO)


Just when you think Donald Trump supporters couldn’t get any more bizarre in their justification for Trump’s “experience” this one really takes the cake.

On Friday, Fox Business News commentator, Geraldo Rivera, discussed Trump’s “virtues” and landed on some curious critiques. “I think that Trump could be a great leader, great negotiator,” Rivera said. “I think, in the Middle East, my goodness who else could get the Palestinians and the Israelis to sit down and say ‘okay, you’re going to get Be’er Sheva Street, you’re going to get that wall over there, we are going to give you this little– No, what do you mean Bibi Netanyahu? You won’t go along with it, do you want to be the obstructionist? Come on Abbas, you can do this.’ I can see Trump negotiating that deal. It’s not as hard as New York real estate.”

If it’s one thing Trump said over and over again in Thursday’s debate it’s that he can make a “deal.” Somehow the ability to make a deal and enact consequences when people refuse to make a deal with him are his major strategies. First, simplifying foreign policy, specifically Middle East peace between Isreal and Palestine, down to negotiating a real estate deal is a joke.

Second, there have been 11 major attempts to achieve peace from both Democrats and Republicans. The treaties enacted thanks to Presidents like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, even George W. Bush accomplished peace, even if it was for a short time. Meaningful peace agreements don’t happen because the middle man is making a deal, it happens because the different parties agree that peace is important. If (God forbid) President Trump wanted to broker a “deal” but the parties won’t agree, there’s nothing Trump can do no matter how great a “deal maker” he happens to be. What an embarrassment.
