Krauthammer on Trump Middle East Trip: ‘America Is Back’


Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer spoke positively about President Donald Trump’s visit to the Middle East that began over the weekend.

According to Krauthammer, Trump’s ability to unify Sunni nations against a hostile Iranian regime demonstrated that “America is back.”


“I understand the theme, the three great religions, trying to tie them all together to make it look somewhat nonpolitical,” Krauthammer said. “But the real story is not the Vatican. It’s not even the Israeli trip. It is the realignment of American policy over Iran, getting the 50 Sunni nations lined up with Saudi Arabia, behind us. This is a new day in the Middle East, and it’s going to have reverberations for many years. That’s the story. It’s a new Middle East right now. America is back. That’s the story, and the consequences are going to be immense.
