Foreign policy will play a major role in the next Presidential election.
Donald Trump is comparing his record to that of Joe Biden’s.
And now Donald Trump made a promise to terrorists that had all hell breaking loose.
On Joe Biden’s watch, Russia invaded Ukraine, Hamas launched the deadliest attack on the Jewish people since the Holocaust and Communist China is threatening to start a war with America over Taiwan.
During his speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s conference in Las Vegas, Trump focused on his foreign policy record as a way to ridicule Joe Biden for his failures on the world stage.
Hamas killed dozens of Americans and took ten more hostages in the horrific October 7 terrorist attack.
Terrorists never felt emboldened to take such actions during Donald Trump’s Presidency.
Trump reminded the crowd of this fact in his speech.
“When I am back in the White House, America’s enemies will know once again that if you try to kill our citizens, we will kill you,” Trump declared.
Trump sent a warning to Hamas or any other foreign adversary even thinking of harming one hair on an American’s head that they would be met with the type of overwhelming force that obliterates them off the face of the earth.
“If you spill a drop of American blood, we spill a gallon of yours,” Trump declared.
When Trump ran for President in 2016, establishment Republicans, the media, and Democrats claimed Trump’s rhetoric would tweet America into World War III.
Instead, the opposite happened.
Trump’s militaristic rhetoric provided the cover for Trump to deal diplomatically with the Middle East as well as keep enemies like Russia, Communist China, Iran, and North Korea on their toes.
Trump’s promises of “fire and fury” made North Korea think twice about engaging in nuclear tests or aggressive actions against South Korea.
Similarly, Trump’s warning to Putin where Trump hinted that invading Ukraine would lead to nuclear war allowed Trump to be the only President in the 21st century on whose watch Russia didn’t launch a war of aggression to seize territory lost when the Soviet Union collapsed.
Trump’s crippling sanctions deprived Iran of the money to fund attacks on Israel.
And Trump ordering the killing of Iranian terrorist General Qasem Soleimani and ISIS commander Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi showed there were real consequences to killing and targeting Americans.
Donald Trump will campaign on his message that the world was a safer place during his Presidency.
And if Trump faces Joe Biden in the general election Americans will get a straight-up vote over whose foreign policy they prefer.
