MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was raked over the coals after his hot take on President Donald Trump’s part in brokering another Middle East peace deal.
The “All In with Chris Hayes” host stepped in a hornet’s nest of backlash after downplaying the agreement between Sudan and Israel as another “cynical and transactional” deal by the president and his administration. Hayes mocked the achievement in a tweet on Friday that targeted Trump’s son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner.
On Friday, the president touted the peace deal normalizing relations between Israel and Sudan, the third Arab state to do so with Trump’s help. Promising that there “would be many more peace deals to come in the Middle East,” the president spoke by phone with Sudan’s leaders and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office.
The deal was finalized, following months of negotiations, after Trump’s Mideast peace team, led by Kushner and advisor Avi Berkowitz, made a trip to the region this week.
“This is a tremendous show of faith and courage and leadership,” President @realDonaldTrump said.

The president called the latest accomplishment a “HUGE win today for the United States and for peace in the world” in a tweet on Friday.
HUGE win today for the United States and for peace in the world. Sudan has agreed to a peace and normalization agreement with Israel! With the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, that’s THREE Arab countries to have done so in only a matter of weeks. More will follow! pic.twitter.com/UHB8H6oaZc

There was little doubt of the significance of this and previous peace deals the president has brokered in the Middle East.

This is another step toward a future of peace and prosperity in the Middle East made possible by this President 🇸🇩 🇮🇱 🇺🇸

But facts aside, the liberal media continues to show its bias against the president by finding something to attack in even a historic plan for peace.
“It’s kind of hilarious that in end, the one thing Jared Kushner actually did get done was brokering a bunch of (incredibly cynical and transactional) middle east deals,” Hayes tweeted Friday in response to the news.
He was quickly called out by former Acting U.S. director of National Intelligence and ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell.
criticism from the sidelines from someone who has actually never done diplomacy.

The MSNBC host was lit up on social media where many Twitter users slammed his double standards and reminded him of the Obama administration’s disastrous policies in the region and deals worked out with nations like Iran.
“If Obama did this, Chris Hayes would be calling it his best day ever,” Caleb Hull tweeted.
British-Israeli news anchor Eylon Levy thought it was really ironic was that “the biggest triumph in Middle Eastern peacemaking in nearly 30 years is being mocked as ‘cynical and transactional’ because it fell on the wrong president’s watch.”
This is a dumb take

“Here’s why peace deals in the Middle East are actually bad” is a take that only makes sense in 2020. https://t.co/tC4PdANjfI

I don’t get your beef against these deals.

When you’d rather be at war than peace because muh Trump, you may have a problem sir. I hope you reassess

According to progressives, only pallets of cash to a terror state is real diplomacy. https://t.co/71dDXtWo9K

You want to say these deals are not worth anything…fine. That is legit.
To talk about transactional deals, and not admit that Obama’s Nuke Deal was probably the most cynical and transactional foreign policy deal of our lifetimes…that is disingenuous.

It’s telling and the height of Liberal hypocrisy when Liberals attempt to discredit Trump’s unprecedented successes and silent on Obama/Biden failures and lack of achievements.

So now peace in the Middle East is bad since Trump was instrumental in the process.
The left really will oppose literally anything he does.
