Recently, former President Donald Trump made an appearance at the annual leadership meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, where he criticized the weakness of the Biden administration on the international stage. Mr. Trump claimed Biden’s incompetence allowed the deadly Hamas attack, which claimed well over one thousand Israeli lives, including dozens of American citizens.
“Joe Biden’s weakness caused the attack on Israel,” Trump stated. “Everywhere he goes, Biden’s weakness provokes war and death—because as history shows, evil only respects one thing: unyielding strength.”
Trump signaled his support and alliance to the Americans and Israelis who were impacted by the deadly attacks. “Three weeks ago, our world was shattered by an attack on Israel,” Trump continued. “To every Israeli and every American touched by these barbaric atrocities: We love you — you have to understand that — we love you, we grieve with you, we share your anger, and we stand with you 110 percent,” he said.
In the aftermath of the attack, many have attempted to equivocate the ensuing conflict between Hamas and Israel. Trump firmly denounced such a stance, claiming it isn’t possible to paint this scenario as a two-sided conflict, describing it as a fight between “civility” and “savagery.” Mr. Trump also implied that Iran bears some responsibility for the attacks as well.
“The conflict between Israel and Hamas is not a conflict between two equal sides. This is a fight between civilization and savagery, between decency and depravity, and between good and evil. There is no comparison between a group that worships death and a group that cherishes life and cherishes our nation,” the former president continued. “Every single life that is lost in this conflict is on the shoulders of Hamas, Hamas alone — and I think you really have to add in the word ‘Iran,’” Trump said.
Trump continued, doubling down on his commitment to holding Hamas accountable for the atrocities they committed against the innocent Israelis. “There can be no sympathy, no excuses, and no escape for these monsters. And we will do what has to be done,” he said.
Trump then condemned the Biden administration’s decision to deliver $100 million in funding to Gaza following the massive death toll of Israelis and Americans. Per the latest reports, the Palestinian death toll in the Israel-Hamas war has reached over 8,000. According to an official statement from the White House:
The United States remains committed to ensuring that civilians in Gaza will continue to have access to food, water, medical care, and other assistance, without diversion by Hamas. We will continue to work with all parties to keep the Rafah crossing in operation to enable the continued movement of aid that is imperative to the welfare of the people of Gaza, and to continue working to protect civilians, consistent with obligations under international humanitarian law.
“And yet, Joe Biden’s feeble first act, after more than 1,400 innocents, including over 40 Americans, were murdered or kidnapped, and think of this, we immediately announced that we would be sending $100 million dollars into Gaza they take 100%,” Trump said.
