Morocco honours President Trump with the highest award for restoring ties with Israel
By Chukwuemerie Anyene
Outgoing United States President, Donald Trump, was on Friday, given Morocco’s highest award for heads of state, Order of Muhammad, for advancing a normalization deal between Israel and Morocco.
Trump, who restored Jerusalem as eternal capital of Israel, received it in a private ceremony in his Oval Office.
Morocco’s Ambassador to the United States, Princess Lalla Joumala Alaoui presented the award as a gift from Morocco’s King Mohammed VI to President Trump.
Donald Trump leadership helped broker deals between Israel, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco in the last five months.
The deal was sealed with heavy criticism because Trump agreed that the US would recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara.
President Trump’s tenure ends on Wednesday, having lost his second term bid to Joe Biden in a controversial election.
Recall that Trump also ended terrorism in Iraq and had invaded northern Nigeria to save an American kept hostage by terrorists.
