Fmr. Congressman Allen West: Biden, Sanders and Warren Are ‘Siding with Iran’

Former Republican Congressman Allen West praised the killing of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani on Fox & Friends on Friday and attacked three of the major Democratic presidential candidates. The former army lieutenant colonel openly suggested they were siding with terrorism over the United States.

Fox & Friends’ host Brian Kilmeade read West parts of the statements issued by former Vice President Joe Biden and Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the killing of Soleimani. All three criticized the move as reckless and dangerous.

“I guess they figure it’s OK to send billions of dollars of palletized cash to the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism in the world as a means by which to appease or compromise or acquiesce so the Iranians,” West said.

“This is going to draw a very clear difference – a delineation between President Trump what is he doing and these people that are running to be president of the United States of America on the issue of national security,” he went on.

“So, I think that they are not starting off 2020 on a good political footing if they are going to start siding with Iran and not taking action against a terrorist organization, which is what the Quds force is.”

West was a prominent member of the Tea Party movement who once claimed that up to 80 members of the House of Representatives were Communists.
