After winning the primary elections Trump: I support the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip

Former US President Donald Trump celebrated his victory in 12 states in the primary elections. He reaffirmed his support for the Israeli government, expressing his rejection of a ceasefire in Gaza.

Former US President Donald Trump reiterated his support for the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, following his celebration on Tuesday of his victory in 12 states in the Republican Party presidential primaries.

The former president, who is seeking an enthusiastic return to the White House, hopes to win the largest number of delegates in the 15 states, on his way to securing the Republican Party nomination.

On his “Truth Social” platform, Trump expressed his thanks to the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, which he won, while vote counting was still ongoing in the other “Super Tuesday” states.

He described the night of the results announcement as "amazing", as he approached obtaining the Republican Party's nomination for the presidential elections.

Trump said to a crowd of his supporters who gathered in front of his residence in Florida: “There is a reason for calling it Super Tuesday. Experts tell me because it is a big day. Otherwise, it is because this day has never been like it before and nothing is this decisive, at all.”

His rival, former Washington ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, narrowly won in the northeastern state of Vermont, but she has so far refused to withdraw from the race.

On the Democratic side, Biden won in 14 states, according to what American television networks announced.

RealClearPolitics media polls show that Trump has a 65-point lead over his rivals in the primary elections, and by two points over President Joe Biden in the November presidential election.

Support for Israel

At the same time, Trump appeared on Tuesday on a television program on Fox News, in which he declared his support for the Israeli government, after months of remaining silent about the war on the Gaza Strip.

Trump said: “Israel must end the problem in its war against Hamas.”

He added, criticizing the Biden administration: “Frankly, they have become soft. There was an invasion (...) that would not have happened if I had been president,” referring to the Al-Aqsa flood operation on the settlements surrounding the Gaza Strip.

The former American president did not express a clear position on the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip, but during the program he opposed a ceasefire in the Strip.

It is noteworthy that last October 11, Trump said that his future administration “will fully support Israel in defeating, dismantling, and permanently destroying the Hamas group.”

In the four months that followed, Trump's public support for Israel largely subsided.

The Israeli aggression on Gaza left tens of thousands of civilian victims, most of them children and women, in addition to an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe and massive destruction of infrastructure, which led to Tel Aviv being brought before the International Court of Justice on charges of “genocide.”
