Biden Defends Obama's Iran Money Deal After Trump's Speech on Iran Conflict
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pushed back against President Donald Trump’s assertion that the missiles lobbed at the United States by Iran were purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars.
Biden pointed the finger straight at Trump, saying that he has caused a “mess” with his diplomatic decisions since taking office:
"I'm thankful no one was hurt in last night's attack. But we're only in this mess because Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran Deal (which even his advisors said was working), turned his back on our allies, and had no strategy for what comes next," Biden said in a series of tweets on Wednesday.
"Instead of using his statement today to lay out a coherent strategy on Iran, Donald Trump used it to mislead the country on the Obama-Biden record. He's been President for three years. It's time he stops blaming President Obama for his failures."
Trump has consistently pushed for American strength through the exchange which started with an Iranian attack on a United States embassy, reminding the world of America’s military power:
“The United States just spent Two Trillion Dollars on Military Equipment,” Trump tweeted his warning on Saturday. “We are the biggest and by far the BEST in the World! If Iran attacks an American Base, or any American, we will be sending some of that brand new beautiful equipment their way...and without hesitation!”
