Former President Donald Trump weighed in on the devastating attack Hamas launched against Israel.

In a post on his Truth Social platform, Trump stated, "THE HORRIBLE ATTACK ON ISRAEL, MUCH LIKE THE ATTACK ON UKRAINE, WOULD NEVER HAVE HAPPENED IF I WERE PRESIDENT – ZERO CHANCE!"

During a rally in Iowa on Saturday, October 7, Trump further discussed the attack, which has resulted in over 600 deaths and the kidnapping of 100 individuals, mostly civilians.

He described the invasion of Israeli territory by Hamas as an act of savagery that must and will be crushed. Trump also shifted the blame onto the Democrats for the attack, claiming that American taxpayer dollars had funded it.

Trump's criticism of President Joe Biden continued, stating that the current administration's actions were "weak and ineffective."

"They didn't have that level of aggression with me. They didn't have it. This would have never happened with me either," Trump said.

Later in the day, he also declared during a Cedar Rapids rally that Biden had "betrayed Israel" by releasing $6 billion in funds to Iran in exchange for American prisoners.

However, the claim that Biden's prisoner exchange fueled the Hamas attack has been challenged, even by Fox News.

Jennifer Griffin from Fox News conducted a fact-check and revealed that none of the money returned to Iran had been spent.

Additionally, intelligence operatives have suggested that the attack was likely planned for months, given its high level of coordination.

President Biden released a statement condemning the attack on Israel soon after the initial strike was launched.

"The United States unequivocally condemns this appalling assault against Israel by Hamas terrorists from Gaza, and I made clear to Prime Minister Netanyahu that we stand ready to offer all appropriate means of support to the Government and people of Israel," Biden told the press.

"Terrorism is never justified. Israel has a right to defend itself and its people," he continued. "The United States warns against any other party hostile to Israel seeking advantage in this situation."

As RadarOnline.com recently reported, several videos of alleged Hamas operatives went viral on X, formally known as Twitter, dragging the bodies of Israeli people tied to the back of trucks as well as attendees of a music festival being kidnapped in broad daylight.

The horrifying videos, posted on social media, have garnered millions of views and sparked outrage worldwide.
