“Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade has shared his disapproval of President Trump’s Wednesday claim that the Obama administration’s Iran Nuclear Deal is partially to blame for the strikes between America and Iran over the past week.
“I just don’t love bringing up the previous administration, just as I didn’t like when President Obama brought up President Bush,” Kilmeade said on Thursday morning’s show, adding, “You gotta bring people together as the president and just to continue to take shots at President Obama three and a half years later doesn’t make any sense.”
Co-host Steve Doocy quickly responded, “Because, Brian, I think he’s trying to point out that Barack Obama’s policy of essentially what the Republicans call ‘appeasement’ didn’t work.”
“And he’s also trying to point out the fact that we’re not as dependent on them for oil and for energy,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added. “Back then, we were more dependent on them and they were negotiating with us over and over and over with John Kerry trying to figure out how much money we were going to give Iran.”
“We all know that. It’s been 40 years of failed policies,” said Kilmeade, who suggested it’s possible to acknowledge a disagreement with how dealings in the Middle East have gone without “getting everybody back into their corners to fight it out.”
