Former President Donald Trump expressed his disappointment with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu regarding the 2020 drone strike that led to the death of Qassem Soleimani, the leader of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Trump made these remarks during a gathering of his supporters in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Netanyahu's Failure to Support the United States
Trump stated that he would never forget how Netanyahu had let the United States down in this critical situation. The strike against Soleimani was a significant event, considering his influential role within the Middle East.
Trump's Expectations from Israel
According to Trump, Israel was supposed to assist with the planned strike, emphasizing that discussions had taken place over several months. However, to Trump's surprise and displeasure, he was informed the night before that Israel would not be participating. Despite this setback, Trump decided to proceed with the strike after consulting with U.S. military officials.
These comments from Trump provide insight into his relationship with Netanyahu and shed light on their differing perspectives regarding the 2020 drone strike.
Trump Shares Critical Story of Netanyahu
During a recent event held by Club 47, a prominent group of his supporters, former President Donald Trump shared a previously undisclosed story. Trump expressed that he chose to divulge this information to the loyal and beautiful members of the club.
The timing of Trump's decision to share a critical story about Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, immediately attracted attention on social media platforms. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is also competing for the Republican presidential nomination, condemned Trump's choice to attack Israel, describing it as absurd.
During his speech, Trump reassured his audience that if he were to be elected President again in the future, the United States would provide unwavering support to Israel. He emphasized his commitment to defeating, dismantling, and permanently eradicating the terrorist group Hamas.
Aside from discussing international affairs, Trump also took a moment to criticize the sound system at the Wednesday event. Expressing his dissatisfaction, he labeled it as the worst microphone he had ever encountered and jokingly suggested that the bill for the faulty equipment should not be paid.
