US President Donald Trump formally notified Congress on Friday that his administration will remove Sudan from the list of state sponsors of terrorism, nearly 30 years after the African country was first listed.
In a historic joint call afterwards, he also announced a “very special deal” between ‘Israel’ and Sudan — marking the third Arab country to move toward normalizing relations with the Zionist entity in an election-season push by his administration.
In an agreement reached between the State Department and Sudan’s transitional government, the country agreed to pay $335 million to the victims of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, victims of the USS Cole attack, and the family of murdered USAID employee John Granville.
In the meantime, Trump celebrated the announcements Friday, by touting his deal-making abilities: “Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal, Bibi?” he asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over a speakerphone, referring to former Vice President Joe Biden the morning after their last debate.
“There are many, many more coming,” Trump added, after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain announced normalized relations with ‘Israel’ earlier this fall. Few in the Oval Office were wearing masks.
