In the midst of the startling acts of terrorism in Israel, Fox News analyst Jennifer Griffin ripped into former President Donald Trump for what she considered to be disparaging remarks against President Joe Biden.
News of a massive rocket barrage from Gaza and attacks on border communities in the south of the country by Hamas gunmen surfaced on Saturday morning. The attack is said to have been highly coordinated and unprecedented, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claims it has put his nation in a state of war.
In a statement released early on Saturday morning, Trump accused Biden of being behind the attacks:
These Hamas attacks are a disgrace and Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force. Sadly, American taxpayer dollars helped fund these attacks, which many reports are saying came from the Biden Administration. We brought so much peace to the Middle East through the Abraham Accords, only to see Biden whittle it away at a far more rapid pace than anyone thought possible. Here we go again.
When host Neil Cavuto asked Griffin what she thought on Saturday’s Cavuto Live on Fox News Channel, Griffin shot down Trump’s criticism and was about to criticize his misplaced “focus” when Cavuto interrupted to provide Trey Yingst with an update:
NEIL CAVUTO: Last thing I’ll leave you with is a comment from former President Trump. He just put out a statement.” These Hamas attacks are a disgrace and Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force. Sadly, American taxpayer dollars help fund these attacks, which many reports are saying came from the Biden administration, which brought so much peace to the Middle East through the Abraham Accords, only to see Biden whittle it away at a far more rapid base than anyone thought possible. Here we go again.”
I’ve been reading a number of others have been talking to the $6 billion in frozen funds that was unfrozen, you know, in order to sort of get the hostages out and get a better relations, maybe return to an accord. But this is coming up again and again, and that Iran has played a role here. And maybe some of this money was playing a role here. What are you hearing?
JENNIFER GRIFFIN: Well, I think, first of all, Neil, I think you have to push back on some of the statements that that statement from former President Trump. It is an exaggeration to suggest that that there is any evidence that that any of the money that was released as part of that hostage deal– that a lot of that money was tied up in, you know, in goods.
What I would say is that Iran has been funding Hamas across four presidents. And so you you it goes back through the entire when I was based there, again, back in in from 1999 to 2007 is Iran was funding Hamas.
That has not slowed or changed over the years and it’s not one administration or the next who has who has been able to to stem the flow of that money to Hamas.
What is different is the fact that usually Israel has enough intelligence and and accurate predictions and they carry out a lot of strikes in the Gaza Strip to to destroy factories where these rockets are being made. But I think we right now, the focus should be on supporting…
NEIL CAVUTO: All right, Jennifer, thank you. We had some breaking news with Trey.
