Cotton Blasts Biden For Trashing America’s Allies, Igniting War Around The World: He ‘Pussyfooted Around’

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) slammed President Joe Biden on Sunday for trashing one of America’s top allies to serve his own political interests and for igniting war around the world.

Cotton was asked during an interview with Shannon Bream on “Fox News Sunday” about Biden throwing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu under the bus in a recent interview with Time Magazine.

“Well, this is just another slander by Joe Biden against Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government at large,” Cotton said. “Prime Minister Netanyahu’s policies are very popular. There is a war cabinet that is signing off on missions like you saw yesterday. At every turn, Joe Biden has tried to limit Israel’s freedom of action, their ability to defend themselves, and to put more pressure on Israel — not pressure on Hamas and its patrons in the Middle East.”

“What we should be doing is backing Israel to the hilt,” he continued. “And if we had done that since the October 7 attacks, this war would probably already be over, hostages would be freed and there would be less civilian casualties and suffering in Gaza. But Joe Biden is instead catering to the small pro-Hamas wing of the Democratic Party, instead of backing Israel like the large pro-Israel majority of the American people want us to.”

Cotton said that Biden only has himself to blame for the war that has erupted in Ukraine and for how long it has lasted.

“He should only be pointing the finger at himself for more than two years,” he said. “Joe Biden pussyfooted around and didn’t give Ukraine the weapons it needed to defend itself. At every turn in this war, Ukraine has asked for certain types or quantities of weapons. Joe Biden has refused, only to reverse himself three or six or nine months later when it was too late. But take a step back and look at the broader context, Joe Biden is largely responsible for tempting Vladimir Putin to do what he’s always wanted to do, which is invade and annex Ukraine back to Russia.”

“And if you notice, Vladimir Putin only tends to invade Ukraine when Democrats are president,” he continued. “He did it under Barack Obama. He did it under Joe Biden. It did not happen under Donald Trump. For four years, we had peace and stability. And in fact, Donald Trump reversed Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s failed policy of sending Ukrainians blankets and ponchos. When Donald Trump was in office, we sent them the javelins that were essential for winning the battle of Kyiv. And the way to have peace in Europe, and for that matter, peace and stability around the world, is to remove Joe Biden from the White House on Election Day this year and return Donald Trump. That’s how we’ll get back to peace and stability.”
