President Joe Biden was blamed by Donald Trump for the drone strike that killed three American service members and injured several more, which was carried out by militia forces supported by Iran.
A drone strike on a U.S. outpost in Jordan close to the Syrian border was confirmed by Biden and U.S. Central Command on Sunday. Since Hamas’s attack on Israel on October 7, this is the first time that American soldiers have been killed in a Middle East enemy attack. Given the rising instability of the geopolitical climate, this incident has raised concerns about escalation.
Biden put out a statement to mourn the fallen and promise accountability to the perpetrators. As for Trump, the former president got on Truth Social to do the same before calling it “another horrific and tragic consequence of Joe Biden’s weakness and surrender.”
Three years ago, Iran was weak, broke, and totally under control. Thanks to my Maximum Pressure policy, the Iranian Regime could barely scrape two dollars together to fund their terrorist proxies. Then Joe Biden came in and gave Iran billions of dollars, which the Regime has used to spread bloodshed and carnage throughout the Middle East. This attack would NEVER have happened if I was President, not even a chance – Just like the Iranian-backed Hamas attack on Israel would never have happened, the War in Ukraine would never have happened, and we would right now have Peace throughout the World. Instead, we are on the brink of World War 3.
This terrible day is yet more proof that we need an immediate return to PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, so that there will be no more chaos, no more destruction, and no more loss of precious American lives. Our Country cannot survive with Joe Biden as Commander in Chief.
