Hillary Clinton had a big Iranian deal that’s come back to bite Democrats.
Trump may be the one person that saved us from an armed conflict.
Hillary Clinton made a huge Iran promise that just exploded in her face.
The Democrats are trying to pretend that Iranian hostilities are all due to Trump’s mismanagement.
But there’s a major hole in their argument.
The Middle East was a mess before Trump came to power.
He inherited Obama’s foreign legacy which was a disaster.
Even the Democrats knew that force might be necessary to clean things up.
In 2008 Hillary Clinton said that she was willing to go to war with Iran to defend Israel.
According to Breitbart News:
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton warned in 2008 that she was prepared to “obliterate” Iran if it produced a nuclear weapon and promised to retaliate if the country launched a nuclear attack on Israel.
Clips of Clinton’s rhetoric resurfaced after social media users protested President Donald Trump’s decision to kill Iranian Quds force commander Qasem Soleimani which resulted in retaliatory airstrikes from Iran on Tuesday night.
The hashtag #IvotedforHillaryClinton trended on Twitter on Wednesday morning, a trend that Clinton participated in with a taunting gif.
But Clinton may have forgotten her own hawkish rhetoric during the 2008 primary.
Ahead of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary that April, Hillary Clinton was asked by Good Morning America what she would do if Israel was attacked by Iran.
“If Iran were to launch a nuclear attack on Israel, what would our response be?” Clinton said in an interview with then-host Chris Cuomo. “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran. That’s what we will do. There is no safe haven.”
The idea that there would be less conflict in the Middle East if Hillary Clinton was president is insane.
Trump has worked hard during his presidency to keep America out of overseas conflicts.
Even the New York Times’ David Brooks admitted it, saying:
Love or hate him, Trump has used military force less than any other president since Jimmy Carter. When it comes to foreign policy, he is not like recent Republicans. He is, as my colleague Ross Douthat put it, a Jacksonian figure, wanting to get America out of foreign entanglements while lobbing a few long-distance attacks to ensure the crazy foreigners stick to killing one another and not us.
Trump’s foreign policy is one of his strengths as a politician.
His business background means he doesn’t always come at problems the same way as a politician.
Politicians are used to attacking their political enemies according to a set of rules. Politics is a game, while business is war which is why Trump is good at foreign policy.
Democrat’s don’t understand that Trump’s ability to play outside their rules is actually keeping America safe.
Do you think that Trump’s done a better job with Iran than Hillary Clinton would have?
