During a Monday appearance on Newsmax's "National Report," U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) reacted to the terror attack that killed three U.S. troops and wounded dozens more in Jordan over the weekend by blaming the Biden White House.
Tuberville argued the Biden administration "caused" the attack because whoever was behind it, which the senator said should be determined, was "not scared of Joe Biden." He added the attack would have never happened under President Donald Trump.
"This administration has caused this," Tuberville emphasized. "They have no way to get out of it. It's going to get worse. We all have known that somebody's going to have a problem in terms of one of these bases, and we'll have another one in a short period of time. So, we've got to make decisions in the White House, but, as a Republican, we have no voice. I mean, they're not going to listen to us."
Although it is unclear who is behind the attack, Tuberville suggested it was "probably" Iran.
"We need to find out who did it first, but the first thing we need to do is blockade," he declared. "Don't let them have any more money. Take their oil money away from them. Let's break them. That's what President Trump would do, but they'd have never done this under President Trump. They were scared to death of him. They're not scared of Joe Biden."
"This is all on the Democrats," Tuberville added. "This is their policy. This is how they want to run it."
On Sunday, Tuberville offered up his prayers for the U.S. servicemen lost and hurt in the attack.
My prayers are with the families and loved ones of the three American service members killed, and dozens more injured, in today’s terrorist attack.— Coach Tommy Tuberville (@SenTuberville) January 28, 2024
Our country owes these brave heroes a great debt of gratitude for their service and sacrifice.
