Former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to take partial credit for the historic peace deal announced Thursday by President Donald Trump between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), saying he laid the groundwork for the agreement.
In a statement, Biden praised the agreement, under which Israel and the UAE will achieve full normalization of relations. He promised that he and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would build on the deal if they are elected to office in November.
But Biden also tried to claim that he, and former President Barack Obama, deserved some of the credit for the peace deal:
The coming together of Israel and Arab states builds on the efforts of multiple administrations to foster a broader Arab-Israeli opening, including the efforts of the Obama-Biden administration to build on the Arab Peace Initiative. I personally spent time with leaders of both Israel and UAE during our administration building the case for cooperation and broader engagement and the benefits it could deliver to both nations, and I am gratified by today’s announcement.

It was Obama's economy (until the leftists shut things down).
It's now Obama and Biden's Middle East Peace Deal.
Leftists are not just evil. They're parasites!

The Trump administration helped to get this deal in the works. Obama had nothing to do with it. Trump may be taking the credit for it, but it involves his administration, not just him. He should say We helped to get this done, not I got it done.
