Meghan McCain, co-host of “The View,” criticized the media for downplaying the historic peace agreement negotiated by President Trump between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.
During an ABC News town hall discussion Wednesday that featured Trump, McCain highlighted his reference to the Abraham Accords that were signed at the White House earlier today.
“I wish this had gotten more attention and credit,” McCain told his co-hosts. “I know it is difficult to give the Trump administration victories, but I always try to be fair and call the bullets and strikes as we see it. You are witnessing a total geopolitical realignment in the Middle East against Iran and for Israel. And there are rumors that Saudi Arabia may join. ”
The only conservative voice on ABC’s daytime talk show called the White House accord commemoration ceremony “a really big day.”

“For all the pride and the kind of nonsense that we have seen blowing through this administration to bring peace to the Middle East, it really is a huge step,” McCain continued. “And I saw President Trump talking about it and I was very happy yesterday. And that gets very little attention in the scheme of things for its size. And I just wish we could … just take a moment and really appreciate the fact that there are going to be Israeli embassies in Middle Eastern countries right now and this is truly an amazing step forward for the peace in the Middle East and for any pro-Israel American, it was a very big day. ”
Much of the media has attempted to play down the Israel-UAE-Bahrain deal. NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell insisted the Abraham’s Accords did not constitute “peace in the Middle East.”

CNN has devoted much of its programming to the potential health risks of the White House event that took place to commemorate the agreements amid the pandemic.
The anti-Trump network has shamed the Trump administration for the “big crowd” and “little social distancing” that took place, suggesting the event could be a super spreader of the coronavirus.
