According to former President Donald Trump, the invasion of Israel has raised concerns about the near possibility of a third world war.
President Trump issued a cautionary statement while addressing supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Saturday, shortly after the commencement of Hamas’ military incursion into the nation.
According to Trump’s statement, “We are closer to World War III than we’ve ever been. And I’m the only one that will prevent World War III.”
Trump on to assert that a potential conflict of this nature would possess unparalleled lethality, citing notable developments in weaponry.
“That won’t be a war with army tanks going back and forth, too,” Trump warned. “That will be a war with weaponry the likes of which this world has never seen before … I know it. I know it better than anybody.”
The ex-president strongly criticized President Joe Biden’s leadership, asserting that his actions “caused this war with his stupidity” both domestically and internationally, attributing it to his lack of intelligence. Trump cited other acts taken by the Biden administration as factors, such as relaxed border rules and voter identification legislation.
Biden has faced persistent allegations regarding his alleged role in facilitating the Hamas offensive against Israel.
During the weekend, a number of Republican presidential candidates highlighted the recent release of $6 billion in blocked Iranian cash, which was contingent upon the liberation of five Americans who were jailed in Iran.
These candidates asserted that the provision of monies facilitated the occurrence of the attack.
The White House has issued a statement refuting the allegations, asserting that Iran has not yet utilized the monies acquired through the prisoner exchange. According to a high-ranking official from the Biden administration, it is still premature to make definitive assertions on Iran’s potential direct involvement in the planning or provision of support for the Hamas attack.
Nevertheless, the official did acknowledge the existing connections between Iran and Hamas.
The social media post endorsing a “cease-fire” in Israel and advocating for the “release of all hostages held by Hamas” was removed by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Monday morning.
President Biden has consistently expressed his commitment to provide ongoing support to the state of Israel during his tenure. In a recent communication on a popular online platform, the president disclosed that he engaged in a conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier in the day, and expressed they will “will remain in close contact over the coming days.”
The response of former President Barack Obama to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel, resulting in numerous casualties and injuries, has been characterized by his continued silence.
The Obama administration, as well as the presidential library or foundation affiliated with Democratic past Presidents, such as Bill Clinton, have refrained from issuing any official statements regarding the ongoing conflict.
In contrast, the Clinton Foundation has not issued any statements regarding the aforementioned attacks.
Nevertheless, Hillary Clinton issued a formal statement on Sunday evening, expressing her viewpoint:
“My prayers are with everyone affected by the horrific attacks by Hamas in Israel. The United States stands in strong support of our ally, today and every day.”
However, both President Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have refrained from making public statements regarding the attacks.
To yet, the Obama Foundation and its affiliated social media accounts have not released any official statements regarding the Hamas assaults in Israel.
“Not one word from Obama, and why is that? Is he too busy? Or simply indifferent? Or could it be that, having given millions to Iran, he is privately celebrating his role in taking Israel down a notch,” Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza raised a query on X, suggesting the possibility that the individual in issue may be privately commemorating their involvement in diminishing Israel’s standing, potentially attributed to their substantial financial contributions to Iran.

Simultaneously, remarks were published by former Presidents Donald Trump and George W. Bush regarding the ongoing war.
President Trump expressed his disapproval of the attacks, characterizing them as a “disgrace.” He emphasized the need for Israel to protect itself by employing “overwhelming force.”
In a message shared on Truth Social, President Trump expressed “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,” he added.
A statement was also released by the George W. Bush Presidential Center.
“We urge the United States and our allies to stand unequivocally with Israel, its government and people, and support Israel’s right to defend itself against these threats,” the center wrote.
