Republican presidential candidates took turns blaming Biden for helping fund the Hamas attack on Israel with his “$6 billion deal” with Iran. Here’s the whole story.
Hamas Attacks Israel
Less than a month after President Joe Biden made a deal with Iran to swap five American prisoners in exchange for releasing $6 billion in frozen Iranian money, the “Iranian-backed” Hamas terrorist group launched a surprise attack on Israel.
“We Are At War”
Shortly after Hamas attacked, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, released a video saying, “Citizens of Israel, we are at war – not in an operation, not in rounds – at war.”
Presidential Candidates Blame Biden’s Deal With Iran
Several Republican presidential candidates declared their support for Israel while putting some of the blame on President Biden because of the deal he negotiated with Iran less than a month before the attack on Israel.
Trump Speaks Out
Former President Donald Trump posted on Truth Social suggesting, “American taxpayer dollars helped fund these attacks.” Trump referred to the $6 billion President Biden negotiated to “unfreeze” for Iran.

Trump called the Hamas attacks a “disgrace” and said, “Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force.”
Senator Tim Scott Blames Biden
Tim Scott also said in his post on X, “We didn’t just invite this aggression, we paid for it.” Since “Iran is the biggest funder of Hamas,” Scott claims part of the $6 billion Biden released to Iran helped fund the attack on Israel.
“We Paid for It”
Tim Scott also said in his post on X, “We didn’t just invite this aggression, we paid for it.” Since “Iran is the biggest funder of Hamas,” Scott claims part of the $6 billion that Biden released to Iran helped fund the attack on Israel.
“Horrible” to Blame the President
While some seemed to agree with Scott’s post, others called him a “horrible human” and a “traitor” for “blaming the president.”
Critics Bash Senator Scott
Many of the comments on Senator Tim Scott’s post called him a “liar,” saying, “The funds are being held by Qatar.” One person said, “It’s been less than three weeks,” and that “none of the money has been spent.”
Ron DeSantis Supports Israel
Presidential candidate Ron DeSantis also supported Israel in a video message he posted on X.
In his video, DeSantis said, “Iran has helped fund this war against Israel, and Joe Biden’s policies that have gone easy on Iran have helped fill their coffers.”
“Stand up To” Iran
DeSantis promised to “stand with Israel as they root out Hamas,” he also said the United States needs to “stand up to Iran.”
DeSantis “Taking Advantage” for Political Gain
In the comments on his post, one person accused DeSantis of “taking advantage of the moment” to further his presidential campaign.

Others questioned DeSantis’ statement that “America stands with Israel” after he clarified his position on the war in Ukraine when he said he “would not want to see American troops involved there.”
Chris Christie Blames Biden for “Two Wars” During His Presidency
Presidential candidate Chris Christie spoke out on X, saying, “The Hamas war against Israel is now the second war started under Biden’s failed presidency.”
Since Biden has been president, Russia invaded Ukraine, and now Hamas has attacked Israel.
Biden “Invited” the Attack on Israel
Christie said the attack on Israel was “funded by Biden’s idiotic release of $6 billion to the Iranians.” In the same post, he said “Biden’s appeasement of Israel’s enemies” had “invited” this war.
Christie Is “Trying to Score Political Points”
Chris Christie received similar backlash as his running mate, Ron DeSantis. He was also accused of “trying to score political points” with his comments on the Hamas attack.
