Senator Bill Hagerty criticized the Biden administration for sending “mixed messages” to Israel, leading to Iran feeling “emboldened.”

He cited inconsistency in the response to Iran, including the lifting of sanctions and the provision of billions of dollars, as well as mixed messages to Israel.

Sen. Hagerty said, “They’re not taking a consistent response so of course, it’s not appropriate. That’s why Iran feels emboldened. What we’ve seen is put two aircraft carrier strike groups into the region.”

“That’s a massive show of military force. But we’ve been highly inconsistent in terms of the way we deal with Iran from an economic standpoint, and from a diplomatic standpoint,” he continued.

“As soon as Joe Biden came into office, they stopped enforcing that sanctions. Billions of dollars began to flow. They have enriched himself by over $100 billion and it continues just because the Biden administration wants to appease the Iranian regime,” added the lawmaker.

“From a diplomatic standpoint, we’ve been sending mixed messages to Israel. You know, we talk about ceasefires. We talk about sending humanitarian aid into Gaza, we talked about putting conditions on aid,” said Hagerty.

“These mixed messages and the fact that we’ve allowed Iran to enrich itself and repopulate Hamas and Hezbollah in the Houthis with the weapons that they need, have created this situation. We need to snap back economic sanctions. We need to send a clear diplomatic message,” said the senator.
