Trump Says Iran Attack On Israel Wouldn’t Have Happened Under Him

After Iran launched a barrage of missiles at Israel, former president and presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump condemned President Joe Biden’s leadership, arguing that Iran would have never attacked Israel under his watch.

While Biden took yet another vacation on the beach in Delaware on Saturday, Iran launched an airstrike of drones and missiles toward Jerusalem and other areas of Israel.

Biden took this vacation despite the fact that his administration had warned of an imminent attack on Israel in the days leading up to it. The airstrike came in response to Israel’s recent airstrike on an Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria.

According to a Saturday evening statement from Israel Defense Forces (IDF) spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari, the majority of the drones and missiles fired from the terrorist nation were intercepted — though there was minor damage to an IDF base.

During a rally on Saturday evening in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, Trump argued that an attack on Israel like this would not have happened if he was still in the White House — pointing out that this incident has happened because the Biden administration is showing “weakness” on the global stage.

“I want to say God Bless the people of Israel. They’re under attack right now. That’s because we show great weakness,” Trump said.

“The weakness that we’ve shown, it’s unbelievable and it would not have happened if we were in office,” he added. “Everybody knows that. But America prays for Israel. We send our absolute support to everyone In harm’s way. This is an attack that would not have happened.”

The presumptive GOP nominee also asserted that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Hamas terrorists’ massacre of Israelis on Oct. 7, 2023, would not have happened under his leadership.

Trump went on to vow to bring stability back to the world if he is reelected in November.
“We will return the world to peace through strength and it’ll happen very quick. We’ll revive American strength abroad and we will restore American strength at home,” he promised.

“We were respected four years ago all over the world. Today we are considered a joke. It’s not going to be for long, believe me.”

In the aftermath of Iran’s attack on Israel, a 2018 tweet from then-President Trump about Iran is once again being shared by his supporters, where Trump warned the Iranian president about the consequences of threatening the United States.

Addressing the post to then-Iranian President Rouhani, Trump wrote in all caps: “Never, ever threaten the United States again or you will suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before. We are no longer a country that will stand for your demented words of violence & death. Be cautious!”

This strong statement stands in stark contrast to the current administration’s actions toward Iran, as Biden and his officials have repeatedly resorted to appeasement to deal with the terrorist-supporting nation despite the fact that it has never worked in the past.

Instead of issuing warnings or threats, Biden has announced a plan to “coordinate a united diplomatic response to Iran’s brazen attack.” This “diplomatic response” comes after Iran issued a direct threat toward the United States.

“If the U.S. participates in the next aggressive actions by [Israel] through the bases it has in the [Middle East] region or the military facilities it has in the region and this information is confirmed for us, its bases in the region will not be safe,” Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, the chief of staff of the Iranian armed forces, told state media.
