Former Trump Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who is a current Fox News star made a bold claim on Fox News recently.

McEnany stated that the Hamas terror attack that recently happened in Israel would not have happened on the former president’s watch.

Mediaite reports that McEnany made the claim while discussing the topic with liberal commentator Marie Harf.

Mediatite’s report goes further:

“Marie, in all due respect, you say they have been negotiating powerfully. Yes, we have gotten hostages back — who should have never been hostages! I don’t believe this attack would have taken place on President Trump’s watch, because this administration has not shown strength on the world stage,” McEnany said.

“We want them to be tougher, right?” Harf said of the Biden administration. “We want them to push back, we want these attacks on our troops to stop, but what does that actually look like? OK, we can re-designate the Houthis — OK, we can talk about that. This administration has put over 50 additional sanctions on Iran since they came into office. Are we talking about striking Iran in Iran?”

“Take out a Soleimani-type figure like Trump did!” McEnany interjected.

“But that didn’t stop the attacks, Kayleigh!” Harf pushed back.

Harf insisted for a second time that, “it didn’t stop the attacks!” after McEnany claimed, “Not a single American service member died in the final year of his presidency,” in response to the same claim by Harf.
