Iran Could Be the Biggest Divider Between Trump and Biden

As the 2024 Presidential election heats up, the biggest division between incumbent Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump looks to be how to deal with Iran going forward. With a strike by Iranian-backed Islamic fighters killing three US troops and wounding at least 25 others on Jan 27th, the lack of response by Biden to the building aggression has left the American people largely unimpressed with its commander in chief.

Meanwhile, Trump has been out there with his message about the situation. After offering condolences to the families of the fallen, he wrote on Truth Social, “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.”

So far, the only thing Biden has offered is some weak condolences and a promise to respond. A meaningless statement given how he has vowed to make something happen, but he consistently only responds by giving away money. Money that also frequently goes right back into the pockets of the very people who are trying to kill our troops. This isn’t the way to support Israel, nor is it the way to honor the memories of the troops you led to slaughter.

If the American people don’t get right in 2024, we could be heading right into World War III, and it certainly seems like that’s exactly where Biden wants to take the nation.
