DELUSIONAL: Mike Pence BLAMES Trump For Hamas Attacking Israel


Former Vice President Mike Pence blamed Trump for the recent Hamas attacks against Israel.

While campaigning in Iowa, Pence claimed Trump’s promotion of isolationism is to blame for Hamas’ assault against Israel.

Pence stated “voices of appeasement like Donald Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis that I believe have run contrary to the tradition in our party that America is the leader of the free world.”

He went on to say “This is also what happens when you have leaders in the Republican Party signaling retreat on the world stage.”

Here’s what Politico reported:

Former Vice President Mike Pence tore into Donald Trump and pointed to isolationism in the Republican Party as complicit in the sweeping Hamas attack on Israel, decrying American “retreat on the world stage.”

In a scathing rebuke, Pence faulted “voices of appeasement like Donald Trump, Vivek Ramaswamy and Ron DeSantis that I believe have run contrary to the tradition in our party that America is the leader of the free world.”

Pence’s comments in Iowa represented the first ripple in the Republican primary from the violence that erupted on Saturday — and effectively threw down a challenge to Republicans he said have “embraced the language of isolationism and appeasement.”

The role of the United States in maintaining global security is one of the most important points of friction between the Republican presidential candidates — one that could now erupt in a new way because of the violence in Israel. Pence’s criticism of Trump was uncharacteristically pointed. But it was even more remarkable for the break it represented in their previously lockstep approach to Israel. Once a signature priority of the Trump-Pence administration, the U.S.-Israel relationship Saturday was suddenly becoming a wedge issue between them.

“This is also what happens when you have leaders in the Republican Party signaling retreat on the world stage,” Pence said.

Per Red State:

As hostilities continue between Israel and the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, prominent Republicans are weighing in on the matter. The commentary coming from Republicans highlights the debate between those who favor a more interventionist approach and those who believe America should stay out of foreign conflicts.

On Saturday, former Vice President Mike Pence lashed out at former President Donald Trump and others in the GOP for being “voices of appeasement” in their stances on foreign policy.
