Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election has serious implications for Canada and the world.
There is no doubt that compared to Joe Biden, Donald Trump is disliked by most of the world.
But should a presidential election be only a popularity contest?
Should strong accomplishments be figured into a voting decision?
Let’s look at the hot spot of our modern world: the Middle East.
A stunning announcement in August told the world of a major peace success story in the Middle East. Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed a working agreement to co-exist and work together on all fronts.
With 25 years of failed peace efforts, finally, a breakthrough.
Who were the main players in this astounding accomplishment? None other than President Donald Trump, along with senior adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, and also the prime minister of Isreal, Benjamin Netanyahu.
A breath of fresh air is blowing in the Middle East.
Will the American voters decide that personal popularity and a better image in the world is more important than world leadership.
