( – Former President Trump expressed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the need to swiftly conclude the Gaza conflict and restore normalcy, highlighting Israel’s losing position in the public relations aspect of its confrontation with Hamas. In a conversation on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt’s program, Trump was queried about his stance on Israel’s actions in Gaza, perceived by some as critical.

Hewitt probed whether Trump remained fully supportive of Israel and sought his counsel for Netanyahu, to which Trump emphasized the necessity of a prompt resolution and return to normalcy. He critiqued the Israeli strategy, stressing the importance of a decisive victory and criticizing Israel’s approach to public relations, particularly the release of footage showing the destruction in Gaza, which he believes is detrimental to Israel’s image.

Trump underscored the urgency for Israel to conclude its military actions and move forward. These remarks were made amidst increasing global concern over a drone strike in Gaza that resulted in the deaths of humanitarian workers, intensifying calls from various quarters, including the Biden administration and Democratic legislators, for Israel to better safeguard civilians and facilitate aid delivery to Gaza.

Although Trump, the expected Republican nominee for the next presidential election, has not detailed how he would manage the Israel-Hamas conflict if in office, he has consistently claimed that such a conflict would not have arisen under his presidency. He has often praised his administration’s support for Israel but has faced criticism for his remarks about Jewish Americans who support Democrats or criticize Israel, suggesting they are disloyal to their faith.
