Trump calls on Israel to “end” the war in Gaza because it is “losing so much of the world”

Donald Trump has called on Israel to “end” its war in Gaza as it loses support around the world.

In an interview with an Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom, The former president said he watched images of bombs falling on residential buildings in Gaza every night, calling it a “big mistake.”

“You have to end your war… You have to end it. And I'm sure you will. And we have to reach peace. This cannot continue. And I will say, Israel has to be very careful, because you are losing a lot of the world, and you are losing… “Lots of support.” He told the newspaper.

The former president has refrained from making continuing comments on the war since the October 7 Hamas attacks and the subsequent Israeli response. These statements represent his strongest intervention yet on the matter before the UN Security Council vote on Monday calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, which the United States abstained from.

When asked how he would confront the surge in anti-Semitism that followed the Hamas attacks and Israel's response, Trump appeared to blame images of Israeli bombings coming from Gaza.

“Well, that's because you resisted,” he said. “I think Israel made a very big mistake. I wanted to call [Israel] He says don't do that. These are pictures and snapshots. I mean, moving shots of bombs being dropped on buildings in Gaza. I said: Oh, that's a terrible picture. It's a very bad image for the world. “The world sees this… Every night, I watched buildings fall on people.”

When asked about the presence of Hamas fighters in buildings struck by Israel, Trump said: “Go do what you have to do. But you don't do it.”

“And I think that's one of the reasons why there's so much bribery,” he added. “If people didn’t see it, I was watching every single one of them every night. I think Israel wanted to show that it’s hard, but sometimes you don’t have to do it.”

Trump blamed President Joe Biden for the war.

“He can't talk. He's a very stupid person. He's a stupid person. His foreign policy for 50 years has been terrible,” Trump said during the interview at Mar-a-Lago. “If you look at the people who were in other administrations with him, they saw him as a weak and ineffective president.” [Hamas] I never would have made that attack if I had been there.

Trump repeated his argument that Jews who do not support him “hate Israel.”

When asked how he would react if Hamas kidnapped his children or grandchildren, Trump said he would “act the same way you did.” You'd have to be crazy not to do that. Only a fool wouldn't do that. “This was a horrific attack.”

Trump was asked about recent comments made by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who called for new elections and the replacement of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“I think it's a terrible thing to do because it takes all your momentum,” Trump said, continuing to call progressive Democratic lawmakers in the US “crazy” who “hate Israel” and the Jewish people.

“Israel has to do better with its promotion and public relations because right now it is in shambles,” Trump said. Israel Hayom.

Netanyahu canceled a trip to Washington on Monday after the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution calling for a ceasefire. The United States allowed the vote to pass by abstaining.

In recent weeks, the Biden administration has publicly called on Israel to rethink its plan to invade the city of Rafah, where more than a million Palestinians are seeking refuge after being displaced from across the region.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken met with Netanyahu on Friday. While leaving the country, he told reporters that he had “frank conversations” with the Israeli prime minister.

He added that such an attack in Rafah “risks killing more civilians. It risks wreaking greater havoc on humanitarian aid. It risks increasing Israel’s isolation around the world and jeopardizing its long-term security and standing.”

But Netanyahu rejected these suggestions, and said after his meeting with Blinken that he was still committed to launching an operation in the city.

I also said that there is no way to defeat Hamas without entering Rafah and eliminating the rest of the brigades there. “I told him that I hoped we would do it with the support of the United States, but if we had to, we would do it on our own.”
