Former President Donald Trump called President Joe Biden ‘pretty pathetic’ and claimed Iran wouldn’t be attacking Israel if he remained in office. 

Trump, the presumptive 2024 Republican nominee, held a press conference early Friday evening after meeting at Mar-a-Lago with the embattled GOP House Speaker Mike Johnson, floating that Biden could get the country into a ‘world war.’ 

The ex-president was asked by a reporter about the U.S. warnings that Iran was about to strike Israel and if he’d been in touch with Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu. 

Trump wouldn’t divulge if he’d spoken to Bibi adding, ‘But for the president of our country to actually put out a warning that he thinks that we’re going to be attacked or they’re going to be attacked. That’s pretty pathetic.’ 

‘They wouldn’t be attacking Israel if I were president, that I can tell you,’ he continued. ‘And they never did.’

‘They wouldn’t be attacking. Iran was in no position to attack. They had no money. They were broke,’ Trump added. 

He claimed that Iran had amassed $221 billion – a figure the ex-president has used before but the origin is unclear – to create trouble in the Middle East alongside Iraq. 

‘With all that we’ve done, with all of the fighting, all of the death, look at what happened. How incompetent the whole thing is,’ Trump continued. ‘I don’t want to say who I spoke to but I think it’s a very, very dangerous period.’  

‘This is a very dangerous period of time in our nation and a big reason that it’s dangerous is because we have a president that’s grossly incompetent,’ Trump added.

Earlier in his Mar-a-Lago appearance, Trump discussed how he thought the world’s problems could spiral out of control. 

‘You could end up in a world war between Russia and Ukraine and all of the chaos and that’s something that should have never happened, that would have never happened. What’s going on with Israel, October 7 and what’s going on with Israel could end up in a world war,’ Trump said. 

He went after Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee saying, ‘we have a president that can’t put two sentences together.’ 

‘We have a president who can’t find the stairs off the stage. We have a president who doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing. And we could end up in a world war,’ Trump said.

‘You know, we have just a little bit less than seven months now, months before November 5, but that’s an eternity when people are incompetent,’ the former president added.  

For months he’s teased that Biden could bring about World War III.

Polling that was released Friday, however, showed that one of Trump’s weakest attributes was his handling of foreign policy. 

Forty-seven percent of Americans surveyed in an AP-NORC poll said that Trump harmed U.S. foreign relations. 

Israel is bracing for an Iranian attack after an April 1 strike on a building adjacent to the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria killed members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. 

The U.S. embassy in Jerusalem sent a warning out Thursday to diplomats in Israel that didn’t specifically mention Iran but barred them from travel. 

Biden said Wednesday in the Rose Garden alongside Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida that Iran was ‘threatening to launch a significant attack on Israel.’ 

‘As I told Prime Minister Netanyahu, our commitment to Israel’s security against these threats from Iran and its proxies is ironclad. Let me say it again: ironclad. We’re going to do all we can to protect Israel’s security,’ Biden said. 

On Friday, Biden reiterated that Iran should not attack Israel. 

‘Don’t,’ he said.
