Highlights from the interview include:
On Senator Marshall’s support for Israel:
“Once again, President Biden has found a way to take something that could unify Congress and divided us.”
“We have a war [in Israel] that’ll probably last weeks, maybe months, but this is a war for the sake of humanity. The situation in Ukraine is much different. That’s a war that’s going to probably last seven, eight or nine years; it’s going to cost a trillion dollars of American dollars as well, and we don’t all support it.”
“And I can tell you that President Biden’s bill is dead on arrival on the House side. There’s even less support for Ukraine funding. So Joe Biden’s policy is going to slow down the process.”
On Biden’s support for Iran:
“And then we haven’t touched on Iran… Iran is the head of the snake. There’s no moral clarity coming out of the President when it comes to Iran, either. They are the financier, they’re the puppet or they’re the armor. They’re the ones that direct all these proxy wars that are going on right now.”
“That’s the bigger picture. We need to snap back all of our maximum sanctions on Iran right now.”
“I don’t think you can be pro-Israel and pro-Iran, you have to choose one or the other. So under Joe Biden, he’s empowered [Iran’s] nuclear weapon program. He’s unfrozen this $6 billion that you mentioned. Three months ago, he unfroze $10 billion, and he’s now allowing them to sell $1 billion of oil every week.”
“We need to secure our southern border… We need to cut the head off the snake of Iran, and we need to eliminate Hamas. Have you heard that clarity yet come from Joe Biden? We need a president who’s going to put our best foot forward to stand with peace through strength. Look, I’m not a warmonger. I don’t want this war, but let’s face it, over the next days, weeks, and months, it’s gonna get really ugly there in the Gaza Strip. And Israel needs to know that we have their back, that unequivocally, we’re going to stand with them.”
