Trump Signs Peace Deal With Nations Not At War

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Not to worry.

It’s just another episode of the Trump Surreality Show.

You haven’t missed anything.

“We say enough to our conflict, after years of not fighting each other, finally we’ll bring calm to Dubai’s surrounding areas,” the Netanyahu character sarcastically begins.
