Sen. Tim Scott slams Biden admin' weakness for Hamas attack on Israel

October 9, 2023

In the aftermath of the initial Hamas-led attack on Israel, Republican presidential candidates have weighed in on what they believe is happening.

According to a Breitbart exclusive, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) believes that it's no mystery why such an unprecedented attack happened on President Joe Biden's watch.

Scott, and others, believe that Biden's pathetically weak foreign policy stance is "inviting" aggression from the West's enemies around the globe.

"When you see weakness in the Biden administration, you should expect aggression around the globe," he said.

The GOP presidential candidate doubled down, torching the Biden administration for being "passive" against America's enemies, and enemies of our allies like Israel.

"We must not only condemn the aggression, but we have to stop inviting the aggression by being pacifist — and in the Biden administration, every single time they’re being passive. It is a sign to the rest of the world — blood in the water — for bad actors," Scott said.

The senator continued, "Think about Afghanistan’s terrible withdrawal. Think about President Biden saying you can have a small incursion in Ukraine."

He added, "Point after point after point only says President Biden lacks the backbone to be strong. Therefore, bullies, dictators, and bad actors take that as a sign to become more aggressive."

Scott also slammed the $6 billion payment to Iran in a prisoner swap deal earlier this month. Democrats have argued that the money hasn't played a role, though any reasonable thinking person knows otherwise.

"When you pay $6 billion ransom to Iran, who funds Hamas, we should not be surprised [that] paying ransoms at $6 billion will only show signs of weakness, at least through aggression by Hamas, by Iran, and the people that pay the most immediate price are our allies in Israel," Scott said.

He also used the moment to convince voters why America needs a strong Republican president, such as himself, to ensure that such attacks don't happen, or at least don't come quite as easily.

"One of the reasons why I’m running for president [is] because I know that when America is weak, that means there’s blood in the water for bad actors, and the worst is yet to come," Scott said.

Most GOP presidential candidates have all echoed the same message, and have declared support for Israel's right to defend herself.

Israel has vowed to launch a complete siege of the Gaza Strip in the coming days as retaliation for the horrific attack that changed the history of the country overnight.
