President Donald Trump reacted to news of the attack against U.S. troops in Jordan, which killed three American service members and injured dozens of others.
In a series of posts to his Truth Social on Sunday and an official campaign statement, Trump called the attack “a horrible day for America,” offering condolences to the families of the service members who lost their lives.
Trump then began attacking Joe Biden, calling the attack a “consequence” of his opponent’s “weakness and surrender.”
“Three years ago, Iran was weak, broke, and totally under control,” said Trump. “Thanks to my Maximum Pressure policy, the Iranian Regime could barely scrape two dollars together to fund their terrorist proxies.”
Trump further claimed that “Joe Biden came in” and gave Iran “billions of dollars,” which was used to “spread bloodshed and carnage throughout the Middle East.”
“This attack would NEVER have happened if I was President,” said Trump, who then maintained that the attacks on Israel by Hamas, along with the war in Ukraine, would also never have happened.
Trump concluded that the attack was “more proof” that the nation must return to “PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH” to end the “loss of precious American lives.”
“Our Country cannot survive with Joe Biden as Commander in Chief,” Trump wrote.
As previously reported by RSBN, at least three U.S. troops were killed and 25 wounded as of Sunday afternoon following a drone-strike attack near an outpost in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border.
These attacks mark the first fatalities of American service members following months of assault from Iranian-backed militias amid the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas.
