During escalating violence in Israel, former President Trump questioned Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats and criticized President Biden’s foreign policy on Monday.
In remarks to supporters in New Hampshire, Trump asserted that Biden “betrayed Israel” and cited the terrorist attacks in Israel and subsequent fighting in Gaza as the most recent instance of a foreign conflict erupting during the Biden administration.
“I can’t imagine how anybody who’s Jewish or anybody who loves Israel — and frankly, the evangelicals just love Israel — I can’t imagine anybody voting Democrat, let alone for this man, who’s totally — he was shot 30 years ago. He’s more shot now. But the problem was all caused by crooked Joe Biden,” Trump said.
“Less than four years ago, we had peace in the Middle East with the historic Abraham Accords. Today we have all-out war in Israel, and it’s going to spread very quickly. What a difference a president makes.” he continued.
Trump addressed his supporters in Wolfeboro days after the terrorist organization Hamas initiated an attack against Israel. More than a thousand people have perished in the fighting between Israel and Gaza.
The State Department has verified the deaths of at least eleven Americans.
The former president stated that, upon regaining office, he would cut off all aid to the Palestinians and reinstate and expand a travel prohibition targeting several majority-Muslim nations.
