Donald Trump issued a statement Sunday addressing the unmanned aerial drone attack on a U.S. military base in Jordan near the Syrian border.

The attack, reportedly conducted by Iran-backed militant groups, left three American service members dead and injured dozens more.

Drone Attack On U.S. Base Kills Three American Service Members, Injures Dozens More

“The drone attack on a U.S. Military Installation in Jordan, killing 3 American Servicemembers, and wounding many more, marks a horrible day for America. My most profound sympathies go to the Families of the Brave Servicemembers we have lost. I ask all Americans to join me in praying for those who have been wounded. This brazen attack on the United States is yet another horrific and tragic consequence of Joe Biden’s weakness and surrender,” Donald Trump said in a statement.

Cont. from Trump’s statement:

Three years ago, Iran was weak, broke, and totally under control. Thanks to my Maximum Pressure policy, the Iranian Regime could barely scrape two dollars together to fund their terrorist proxies. Then Joe Biden came in and gave Iran billions of dollars, which the Regime has used to spread bloodshed and carnage throughout the Middle East. This attack would NEVER have happened if I was President, not even a chance – Just like the Iranian-backed Hamas attack on Israel would never have happened, the War in Ukraine would never have happened, and we would right now have Peace throughout the World. Instead, we are on the brink of World War 3.

This terrible day is yet more proof that we need an immediate return to PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, so that there will be no more chaos, no more destruction, and no more loss of precious American lives. Our Country cannot survive with Joe Biden as Commander in Chief.

Newsweek reports:

During remarks at a church in South Carolina, Biden said: “We had a tough day last night in the Middle East. We lost three brave souls in an attack on one of our bases.”

After moment of silence, the president said, “and we shall respond.”

The situation in the Middle East has grown increasingly precarious for the U.S. and its forces stationed there since October 7, 2023, when Hamas launched an attack that killed some 1,200 Israelis and approximately took 250 people hostage. Israel responded by cutting off critical supplies and electricity to Gaza, declaring war against Hamas.

In the months since the war began, more than 26,000 Palestinians have been killed, the Associated Press reported, citing health officials in Gaza. Thousands more Palestinians remain missing or severely wounded, and an estimated 80 percent of the more than 2 million people residing in Gaza have been displaced.

Biden’s administration has strongly supported Israel throughout the war. In response, Iran-backed groups have targeted U.S. troops in the Middle East with regular attacks. Since mid-November, the Iran-aligned Houthi militants in Yemen have launched exploding drones and missiles at vessels in the Red Sea. The U.S. has responded by carrying out a series of strikes against Houthi targets in Yemen.

Daily Mail added:

The drone attacks late Saturday were carried out on a base in the northeast part of Jordan, near the Syria border and is thought to be carried out by Iran, which is the main backer of Hezbollah.

The suicide strike comes as conflict in the wartorn region continues to escalate, with the war between Israel and Hamas terrorists in Gaza still ongoing, and Iran currently exchanging airstrikes with U.S. ally Pakistan.

House Foreign Affairs Chairman Michael McCaul also blamed the Biden administration for being too weak on Iran and facilitating a foreign policy environment where they thought they could get away with it.

‘Iran’s proxies have launched over 150 attacks on US troops since October, as the Iran-backed Houthis attack global shipping, and Iran-backed Hezbollah and Hamas attack our ally Israel,’ McCaul wrote. ‘The Biden administration’s failed Middle East policy has destroyed our deterrence against adversaries in the Middle East.’

‘We need a major reset of our Middle East policy to protect our national security interests and restore deterrence.’
