It is widely reported and generally accepted that Lord Damp Nut believes himself to be a real estate mogul, a buyer-seller-trader par excellence. Which of course was why he was trying to buy Greenland at the urging of a cosmetics heir and at some point offered to trade Puerto Rico for it. In other words, he sees the world like the board game Monopoly.
Anyway, we read with some interest that one of Prznint Stupid’s other proposed real estate swaps was to give the West Bank (home to Palestinians) to Jordan (and we presume that there must be “first, a favor” from our former Mob Boss in Chief):
President Trump once offered what he considered “a great deal” to Jordan’s King Abdullah II: control of the West Bank, whose Palestinian population long sought to topple the monarchy.
“I thought I was having a heart attack,” Abdullah II recalled to an American friend in 2018, according to a new book on the Trump presidency being published next week.
“I couldn’t breathe. I was bent doubled-over.”
I generally don’t write about international politics because I generally don’t understand it, but I do understand that this is insane.
