Former President Donald Trump released a statement reaffirming his support for the state of Israel in the wake of the ongoing conflict in the region with Hamas and other Palestinian groups.
The former president also ripped into President Joe Biden, saying that his “weakness” has led to new attacks on American allies.
“When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked. Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies.”
Trump followed up by attacking Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who was criticized yesterday for saying that Israel defending itself from Hamas rocket attacks amounted to terrorism.
“Unbelievably, Democrats also continue to stand by crazed anti-American Rep. Ilhan Omar, and others, who savagely attack Israel while they are under terrorist assault.”
“America must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the U.S. will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself,” the former president added.
The conflict between Israel and Gaza has continued to escalate with Hamas launching a barrage of rockets Tuesday evening over Tel Aviv, Israel’s largest city.
