Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo heavily criticized President Biden’s approach to the Middle East, specifically his talks with Iran. Pompeo accused Biden of attempting to Make Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, America’s “senior partner” in the Middle East.
During an interview with Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Pompeo specifically accused Biden on siding with Iran over our ally, Israel.
Fox News reports:
“Think about just these first 100-plus days. There’s a group of terrorists in a country called Yemen. … They’re called Houthis – they’re tribesmen. They are an Iranian proxy. They’re clearly terrorists, and the administration says, no, we’re going to de-designate them. We’re going to say they are not terrorists,” Pompeo continued, referring to the Biden administration’s move in February to lift the designation of Houthis as a global terrorist organization. “Today, they are launching missiles into the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Americans traveling in Riyadh and Jeddah, all over. There will be an American killed.”
But Pompeo said the Biden administration is creating “the ninth year of the Obama-Biden administration’s effort to make Iran America’s senior partner in the Middle East.”
“It is dangerous for the Gulf states, it’s especially dangerous for this important place of Israel that’s going to celebrate its 73rd anniversary in the days ahead,” Pompeo added.
Pompeo then went after radical Democrats who he says are expressing blatantly anti-Semitic behavior, specifically Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“This is now sweeping into mainstream liberal ideology that somehow Israel’s existence is a threat to the world, not a glory,” Pompeo said.
