Donald Trump’s trip to the Middle East was lauded as a success.

And the dividends began paying off immediately after he returned home.

So the Deep State pulled off a dirty trick that could imperil Trump’s entire foreign policy.

After Trump returned to U.S. soil, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates announced they were pulling out of diplomatic relations with Qatar because of its support for terrorism and political Islam.

The Washington Post reports:

“Four Arab nations led a diplomatic break with Qatar on Monday, moving swiftly to isolate the small but influential country in a feud that stunned the Middle East and divided a coalition of monarchies that the United States had hoped to rally to fight the Islamic State and counter Iran.  

The countries — Gulf Cooperation Council members Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, along with Egypt — released coordinated statements accusing Qatar of supporting terrorist groups and saying that as a result they were cutting links to the country by land, sea and air. Other countries, including Yemen, later joined the four-
nation bloc in severing ties with Qatar, which hosts a forward base for the U.S. military’s Central Command and is home to the widely watched Al Jazeera television network.”

Trump praised the move and said it was the result of the diplomacy he conducted on his overseas trip.

But soon after Trump’s tweets appeared, the Deep State reached into their playbook for their most reliable move – blaming Russian hackers.

Saudi Arabia and other nations used statements made by Qatar’s emir that supported Iran and Hezbollah.

But Deep State leakers put the word out that those statements were “fake news” planted on a website by Russian hackers.

CNN reports:

“US investigators believe Russian hackers breached Qatar’s state news agency and planted a fake news report that contributed to a crisis among the US’ closest Gulf allies, according to US officials briefed on the investigation.

The FBI recently sent a team of investigators to Doha to help the Qatari government investigate the alleged hacking incident, Qatari and US government officials say.

Intelligence gathered by the US security agencies indicates that Russian hackers were behind the intrusion first reported by the Qatari government two weeks ago, US officials say. Qatar hosts one of the largest US military bases in the region.”

Observers were skeptical of this claim.

Sean Davis – who is the co-founder of the website The Federalist – described how this was a success for Trump because the Gulf States view him as a stable partner.
