Amid a war in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas, a terrorist organization, one Democratic billionaire is praising former President Donald Trump’s successful foreign policy, which kept the U.S. and the world at peace for the first time in history.
Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya, a Democrat who is leaning increasingly toward the right, recently appeared on an episode of the All-In Podcast, where he said that “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has affected millions of Americans from honestly evaluating Trump’s tenure as president.
“What those guys did was pretty incredible, in hindsight,” he said. “To really be able to, like, find long-lasting peace is just a real example for the world.”

Palihapitiya cohosts the All-In Podcast with his friends, according to Just The News. Previously, as many Democrats do, the former Facebook executive jumped to an unfair conclusion concerning Trump without providing a valid argument for reaching such a conclusion.
In 2022, Palihapitiya denounced Trump as “an idiot savant, minus the savant,” as reported by the Epoch Times.
Despite his previous comments, Palihapitiya is now lauding the former president for establishing peace throughout the world.
The former Facebook executive pointed out that the Trump administration’s Abraham Accords were an essential part of creating peace in the Middle East.
The Abraham Accords was a diplomatic agreement signed on Sept. 15, 2020. It normalized relations among Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan. For the first time in years, the Middle East was peaceful, unlike today, given the Biden administration’s perceived weakness.
Not only has the Biden administration been a laughingstock on the global stage, but President Joe Biden’s decision to provide Israel with $6 billion early on as president is a key reason Hamas invaded the Holy Land.
Apart from the Abraham Accords, Palihapitiya highlighted other accomplishments by the Trump administration, such as the building of a wall along the southern border, which dramatically reduced illegal immigration for four years.
“So much of the work that happened in that administration turns out to have been right. And that’s what’s so frustrating for me,” he said. “The work on the border wall, we didn’t like the messenger, so we killed the message. Turned out it was right.”
