NOT ON MY WATCH: Trump Unloads on Biden After 3 U.S. Service Members Killed by Iran-Backed Militia

Former President Donald Trump unloaded on President Biden over the weekend after 3 U.S. service members were killed by an Iran-backed militia in a drone attack on an outpost in northeast Jordan near the Syrian border.

“The drone attack on a U.S. Military Installation in Jordan, killing 3 American Servicemembers, and wounding many more, marks a horrible day for America. My most profound sympathies go to the Families of the Brave Servicemembers (sic) we have lost,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social page.

This brazen attack on the United States is yet another horrific and tragic consequence of Joe Biden’s weakness and surrender,” Trump continued. “Three years ago, Iran was weak, broke, and totally under control. Thanks to my Maximum Pressure policy, the Iranian Regime could barely scrape two dollars together to fund their terrorist proxies. Then Joe Biden came in and gave Iran billions of dollars, which the Regime has used to spread bloodshed and carnage throughout the Middle East.”

A senior U.S. defense official told Fox News the injury toll could rise to higher than just 25 Americans.

“This attack would NEVER have happened if I was President, not even a chance – Just like the Iranian-backed Hamas attack on Israel would never have happened, the War in Ukraine would never have happened, and we would right now have Peace throughout the World. Instead, we are on the brink of World War 3,” Trump wrote.

“This terrible day is yet more proof that we need an immediate return to PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, so that there will be no more chaos, no more destruction, and no more loss of precious American lives. Our Country cannot survive with Joe Biden as Commander in Chief,” Trump concluded.

Fellow GOP members joined Trump in blasting the Biden Administration for weakness on the world stage and allowing Iran to operate unchecked.

“Enough is enough. The Biden administration’s appeasement of Iran must end. It’s time for clear and decisive action, and Iran must be held accountable for the malign activities of its proxies,” Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said in a statement obtained by Fox News Digital.

“It’s long past time for President Biden to finally hold the terrorist Iranian regime and their extremist proxies accountable for the attacks they’ve carried out against U.S. and coalition forces,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., chair of the House Armed Services Committee, said in a statement.

Biden shared a statement addressing the attack on X.

“Last night, three U.S. service members were killed, and many wounded, during an unmanned aerial drone attack on our forces stationed in northeast Jordan near the Syria border. Jill and I join the families and friends of our fallen in grieving the loss of these warriors in this despicable and wholly unjust attack. Have no doubt: We will hold all those responsible to account at a time and in a manner our choosing.”
