(TheIndependentStar.com) – In a scathing attack on Joe Biden, a former Trump adviser has justifiably blamed bloodshed worldwide – from the Palestinian terrorist attack on Israel to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s aggressive actions – on the president’s abject foreign policy failures.
The criticism of Biden by Jason Miller, a senior aide to former President Donald Trump during the 2016 and 2020 elections, came just as it emerged that the death toll in Israel’s invasion by the terrorist group Hamas has surpassed 1,200, among them 11 Americans.
On Monday, Miller told Newsmax in an interview that Biden’s foreign policy had “set the stage” for the new Middle East war besides the war in Ukraine.
“Once you lose deterrence, you can’t get it back. Joe Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan really set the stage for all of us. It set the stage for Putin invading Ukraine,” he declared.
“They set the stage for continued aggression from China towards Taiwan, and now this is really the culmination, really the epitome of what we’re seeing with the Biden administration now where you have Hamas, obviously with Iran’s backing, and money that was sent to Iran, that was going to this [attack on Israel],” the former Trump official elaborated.
He slammed both Biden and his former boss, Barack Obama, for de facto giving money to Iran, an ally of terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.
Last month, the Biden administration agreed to unfreeze $6 billion in Iranian assets held in South Korea as part of a prisoner exchange deal.
According to Miller, the funds in question could be moved, thus allowing Iran, a “terror-sponsoring state,” new resources to fund Hamas and other groups.
“Biden has betrayed Israel and everything that President Trump predicted with regard to Biden and foreign policy is coming true in real time on our TVs. Dead Israelis, and dead Americans, and it’s Joe Biden fault,” the former Trump aide said.
On Monday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the unfrozen $6 billion hadn’t been sent to Iran yet, but he said Iran might have sponsored the terrorist attack on Israel.
In his interview, Miller stressed the dire predictions made in 2020 by President Donald Trump about a potential Biden presidency.
“I don’t think even President Trump, or any Trump supporter, would have realized just how bad it would have gotten,” the former president’s ally concluded.
