Joe Biden lit into President Donald Trump’s tweeting about the chance of retaliating against Iran Saturday night, calling it incredibly dangerous and irresponsible.
Speaking before a campaign event here, Biden accused Trump of taking reckless action as the walls draw in on this guy.”
No president has a right to take our country to war without the informed consent of Americans — informed consent. And right now we have no idea what this guy has in mind, we have no idea,” Biden said. He's isolated us from our partners. He's isolated us from our NATO allies.”
He's going off on a tweetstorm on his own,” Biden said. And it's incredibly dangerous and irresponsible.”
Biden took no questions from reporters after his brief remarks.
On Saturday, Trump tweeted a defense of his order to kill Qassem Soleimani.
He was already attacking our Embassy and preparing for added hits in other locations. Iran has been nothing but problems for several years. Let this serves as a message that if Iran beat any Americans or American assets, we've … targeted 52 Iranian sites (representing the 52 American hostages taken by Iran a few years ago), some at a very high-level important to Iran & the Iranian culture, and people targets, and Iran itself is HIT in no time and very HARD. The USA wants no more threats!”
Biden referred to Trump’s remarks on social media as a tweetstorm,” and said it was unclear whether the president was acting with or without the counsel of his advisers.
This is a guy who seems to be unmoored. You may remember some of you asked me this question a long time ago. I said, the more the walls close in on this guy the thing I worried most about him doing something irrational, maybe getting us into a war.
