Post navigation Donald Trump is trying to get immunity from a lawsuit by arguing that the Justice Department must defend him as a former president. The Justice Department is not required to do this, but there is a precedent set by previous administrations. The legal battle is just beginning as Trump’s lawyers take the case to the federal court. The United Arab Emirates and Israel have agreed to a peace deal based on mutual recognition, non-aggression, and peaceful coexistence. The deal was brokered by the US and is the first peace accord between Israel and an Arab country in more than 25 years. This agreement is also expected to lead to diplomatic ties between the two countries and increased trade and security cooperation.
