Donald Trump’s comments spark a row everytime. The former president of the United States isn’t too kind with his choice of words. He took a jibe at Israel, and how they didn’t participate in the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian Qasem Soleimani.
On Wednesday night, Trump was addressing a rally in West Palm Beach where he accused the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of not cooperating with the U.S. Drone strike.
His words didn’t go kind with the Israel’s minister of communications, Shlomo Karhi. The member of the Knesset and the Likud Party called these remarks as shameful, and added that “We don’t have to bother with him and the nonsense he spouts.” While appearing on Israel’s Channel 13, Karhi said
Shameful that a man like that, a former U.S. president, abets propaganda and disseminates things that wound the spirit of Israel’s fighters and its citizens.
Trump took shots at Israel continously during his speech on Wednesday night. He even went on to compliment Hezbollah for its involvement in the Israeli-Hamas War. The 45th President made some absolutely controversial remarks while addressing the rally. These remarks were some that degraded a nation and its sovereignty. Addressing the U.S. drone strike that killed Iranian Qasem Soleimani he said
We had everything all set to go, and the night before it happened, I got a call that Israel will not be participating in this attack. We were disappointed by that. Very disappointed. But we did the job ourselves, with absolute precision … and then Bibi tried to take credit for it.
Fox News Digital reported more on the claims and comments made by Trump. They enlisted every detail that is deemed necessary for us to understand the entire situation. Appended is the information for your consideration:
Seemingly referring to Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, Trump said, “They have a national defense minister or somebody saying, ‘I hope Hezbollah doesn’t attack us from the north.’ So the following morning, they attacked … If you listen to this jerk, you would attack from the north because he said, ‘That’s our weak spot.’”
Trump remarked that Hezbollah was “very smart” for following every word put out by American and Israeli officials. When reached by Fox News Digital, a Trump campaign spokesperson clarified that “President Trump was clearly pointing out how incompetent Biden and his administration were by telegraphing to the terrorists an area that is susceptible to an attack.”
The United States President Joe Biden had to step in and condemn these comments. Joe Biden sent out a post on X (formerly Twitter) where he stood in solidarity with Israel. Mr. Biden wrote
Our nation’s support for Israel is resolute and unwavering. And the right time to praise the terrorists who seek to destroy them is never.

The word received by Mediaite from White House senior communications advisor Andrew Bates is also in line with the President’s comments. Andrew sent out his words and they confirm that the current government doesn’t support Donald Trump’s statement. Andrew said
Statements like this are dangerous and unhinged. It’s completely lost on us why any American would ever praise an Iran-backed terrorist organization as ‘smart.’
Amid all that has happened and continues to happen in Israel and around the Gaza strip, this tweet by Channel 13 Israel fills us with hope that one day, everyone will be able to take birth without any hassles. Everyone will have a right in the world, and peace will prevail.
