President Donald Trump proved on Saturday that he is still the level-headed leader the world needs as Israel faces full-scale war amid the Hamas terrorist invasion. In a speech delivered in Waterloo, Iowa, Trump addressed the brutality and violence unfolding in the Middle East.
Trump told a crowd of prospective Iowa caucus-goers, “The Hamas terrorist invasion of Israeli territory and the murder of Israeli soldiers and the brutal murder of citizens is an act of savagery that must and will be crushed.”
Over the weekend, news broke that Hamas terrorists had swept into Israel and began a bloody invasion, with the death toll of innocent Israeli men, women, and children climbing to over 100 and counting.
“This is a time when the U.S. needs leadership,” Trump said on Saturday.
He explained that the invasion from Hamas into Israel happened because the United States, at the behest of Joe Biden, had handed over $6 billion to Iran just a few weeks ago. “They didn’t have that level of aggression with ME,” Trump added.
Trump additionally added that the violence in Ukraine, Taiwan, and now, Israel, wouldn’t have happened if he were in the Oval Office.
“People are shocked [at what happened in Israel] – I wasn’t shocked,” he said.
He continued, ““Four years ago we have the Abraham Accords and today we have Israel being ATTACKED…the only difference is, I believe, is the difference between one president and another president.”
Earlier in the afternoon, Trump additionally stated, “…The Israeli attack was made because we are perceived as being weak and ineffective and with a really weak leader.”
