In a recent video posted on X by DeSantis’ War Room account, former President Donald Trump received negative attention for his comments concerning an Israeli official’s warning about a potential Hezbollah attack from the north.
Video Posted on DeSantis War Room on X
DeSantis War Room posted a short video clip: “Trump praises Hezbollah, calling the Iran-backed terror group “very smart” hours after they attacked Israel. Disgusting.”
Trump’s Initial Target: Biden Officials
At the start of the video, Trump discusses Biden administration officials. However, he later shifts his focus to Israel, specifically aiming at the country’s “National Defense Minister” and his comments about Hezbollah.
A Characterization of the Comments
Trump characterizes the Israeli National Defense Minister’s statement as “I hope Hezbollah doesn’t attack us from the north.” This characterization sets the stage for Trump’s ensuing comments.
A Questionable Assertion
Trump labels National Defense Minister Yoav Gallant as a ‘fool,’ insinuating that Gallant’s comment might have incited Hezbollah’s attack from the north.
This assertion raises several questions about the relationship between words and actions.
Trump’s Supposed Praise
Desantis War Room was implying that Trump’s comments that the Hezbollah were ‘smart’ was him praising them.
Dissecting Trump’s ‘Smart’ Remark
While some have interpreted Trump’s comments as praising Hezbollah for being “smart” in this context, in reality, his comments were taken out of context and prompted criticism from others on X.
Dave Reaboi’s critique questions where Trump believes Hezbollah would attack from, given their geographical location on Lebanon’s northern border.
It took no time at all for Trump supporters to call out the post’s misleading implications and for someone to post the entire clip showing that Trump was not praising the terrorists but the Biden Administration.
One Comment Said
Laura Loomer said, “Wow you’re such liars @RonDeSantis, @TeamDeSantis, @DeSantisWarRoom.”
Laura Loomer’s Defense
She went on to say, “I was there tonight. President Trump said Hezbollah’s sneak strategy was smart. He said they were smart enough to evade Israeli intelligence and have made their way across the US border. That’s what he said. And he called out HAMAS and Hezbollah “animals” many times tonight during his speech.”
Loomer Ended With
Loomer wrapped up her criticism of DeSantis War Room with, “No wonder why Trump is beating @RonDeSantis by 58 points in Florida. Nobody is buying your BULL**** divisive lies anymore @TeamDeSantis. Everyone HATES you. DROP OUT! YOU WILL NEVER BEAT TRUMP!”
There was no shortage of people coming to Trump’s defense. TheTexasOne said, “DeSantis people are worse than never Trumpers!”
Sow Seeds of Separation
DeSantis’ team showed the world the type of leadership they might get from President DeSantis with this poorly executed attempt at discrediting Trump.
The Importance of United Support
Amidst challenges in the Middle East, allies like the United States and Israel need to stand together and support each other, especially in times of adversity.
