Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya appeared on the All-In Podcast discussing former President Donald Trump. The conversation focused on Trump’s foreign record, which Palihapitiya says was “pretty incredible.”
The war between Israel and Hamas has been raging since October 7. The war has put foreign policies and records into the spotlight.
On the recent installment of the All-In Podcast, Palihapitiya discussed how people have a tainted view of the former President. He went on to discuss how that view has clouded the things he did accomplish.
His foreign record was the key focus of the discussion. The focus of the discussion was a shock for many listeners since Palihapitiya is known for leaning toward the liberal viewpoint.
The Abraham Accords were a particular focal point of the podcast episode. The Abraham Accords were a landmark agreement that happened under the Trump administration.
The accords were an agreement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. The accords were a peace agreement not achieved until Trump brought the groups together.
Palihapitiya discussed how the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” is very real. The “syndrome” is something that Palihapitiya believes fogs people’s viewpoint of the former President.
People are looking at Trump in such a negative light they can no longer see the massive amount of foreign policy that went into his presidency. However, the “Trump is bad” viewpoint is beginning to falter.
One of the examples Palihapitiya gave of the faltering in people’s view of Trump dealt with the border wall. When Trump was in office, building the border wall was met with much opposition.
Palihapitiya pointed out that the opposition is now faltering. The need for a border wall and Trump’s viewpoint of border control and migrant control have been vindicated.
The migrant surge has shown that the United States can not fund or house many migrants entering the southern border. The surge has also shown that issues such as human trafficking and crime rates are increasing significantly.
The answer to the surge is the border wall and immigrant reform. That answer means returning with a fresh look at Trump and what his policies worked.
