At least one wealthy Democratic donor is willing to admit what is obvious to most honest Americans. The world was a better place when former President Donald Trump was in the White House.
Former Facebook executive Chamath Palihapitiya is a Democrat who recently got in touch with his conservative side. He told a recent episode of the All-In Podcast that the left hates Trump so much that it clouds their judgment on what his administration accomplished.
He noted that in hindsight, what the previous administration achieved on the global stage was “pretty incredible.”
Speaking as a co-host of the podcast, Palihapitiya said Trump was “able to, like, find long-lasting peace” and set a “real example for the world.”
This is a far different tune from one he previously sang. The Epoch Times reported that the former social media executive last year referred to Trump as “an idiot savant minus the savant.”
Trump had the best foreign policy in decades. Trump would have prevented war.
Russia and Ukraine
Israel and Gaza

Now he cited the Abraham Accords, which paved the way for normalized relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Palihapitiya also recognized that recent history vindicated the decision to construct a wall on the Mexican border.
Even some of Trump’s staunchest critics are now forced to admit that his foreign policy was a smashing success.
Take the example of NATO nations that historically avoided paying their fair share of defense expenditures.
After the Republican forced their hand, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg thanked Trump “for the leadership you show on the issue of defense spending…It is really having an impact because…allies are now spending more on defense.”
From the earliest days of his presidency, Trump did not shy away from acknowledging the threat China posed to the Western world.
This stance was adopted over time by several European heads of state, who use identical terminology as that of the Trump administration to counter Beijing’s communists. The 45th president could be counted on to see the world as it was, as opposed to how he wanted it to be.
This led to a pragmatic, America-first foreign policy that put potential adversaries on notice. As many noted, U.S. strength is a bedrock for world peace, and no one reflected that strength more than Trump.
