MUSK BLASTS GRINER SWAP: 'Never Leave a Marine Behind. Never.'

Biden’s disastrous deal with Russia continues to be met with disapproval from both ends of the political spectrum. On Thursday, Twitter CEO Elon Musk offered his two cents on trading ‘The Merchant of Death’ for WNBA player Britteny Griner —and leaving behind Paul Whelan, an Iraqi war veteran who remains imprisoned in Russia since 2018.

One Twitter user commented: “Does it surprise anyone the Biden regime would leave a Marine behind after they abandoned Americans in Afghanistan?”

To which Musk replied: “Never leave a marine behind. Never.”

From Fox News:

Musk’s criticism joined the chorus of Republican lawmakers and others who voiced concern Biden failed to free Whelan.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, took to Twitter demanding an answer from the Biden administration on why he excluded the Iraq war veteran from the deal.

“This was likely not a simple ‘choose him or her’ situation. But if it was, you choose the guy that served our country, Paul Whelan. We should get an explanation from this administration immediately,” Crenshaw wrote.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, echoed: “What about retired marine who has been unjustly detained for years, Paul Whelan? Surely an arms dealer is worth two innocent people?”
