Brit Hume acknowledged on TV this week that Trump’s policies concerning the U.S. border and the Middle East were ‘better than what we have now.’
Many Americans are already aware of this, but it’s refreshing to hear someone at FOX News, other than Sean Hannity, express it.
Will others on the network begin to see things this way?
Real Clear Politics provides a transcript:
FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We will reduce the Iranian economy and I withdrew from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, imposed the toughest ever sanctions on the regime… Joe Biden undid it.
He undid it all and gave billions and billions of dollars to the world’s top sponsor of terror, tossing Israel to the bloodthirsty terrorists and jihadists.
BAIER: Brit, is he wrong?
BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS: He is not wrong about that. Whatever you think about Donald Trump and however you feel about him, this does not mean that the policies that he adopted on our border and Israel’s border and in the Middle East we’re not preferable to the mess we’ve got now.
You see [Secretary of State] Tony Blinken, and maybe U.S. intelligence doesn’t back up what “The Wall Street Journal” is reporting. But I believe it, what “The Wall Street Journal” is reporting. And it means that we do not only have to recalibrate our attitude towards Israelis and Palestinians, but we need to stop fantasies that we can do business with an honorable Islamic regime. There is no such thing.
In a comprehensive comparison, Trump’s policies outperformed Biden’s in every aspect. Under the current administration, there are concerns about border security, escalating conflicts, and soaring inflation. It’s disheartening that a larger segment of the media is reluctant to acknowledge these issues.
