Former president Donald Trump (R) currently faces multiple legal battles, yet he recently took time to criticize President Joe Biden (D) and how he's handled the Israel-Hamas war.

In a speech aimed at GOP donors as well as potential voters, Trump blasted Pres. Biden. The former president made inflammatory statements that targeted Pres. Biden's response to the Israel-Hamas war.

Trump stated that he would protect Jews from anti-semitic attacks, as well as various Democratic lawmakers who have made anti-Israel statements. However, Trump has made several questionable remarks regarding terrorism.

Recently, the former president gave what many viewed as complimentary remarks toward the Iranian-funded terrorist group Hezbollah.

In a speech, Trump complimented the Iranian-backed terrorist Hezbollah, calling them “very smart.”

The disturbing comments were met with much criticism from many lawmakers, including those in the GOP. Trump has faced increasing criticism as his legal woes pile up.

After hearing his former attorney Michael Cohen's testimony, Trump made statements, both in-person and on social media, claiming that someone very "partisan" was sitting next to the judge. These accusations put the former president in trouble as he ran the risk of receiving a financial penalty for his words.

Judge Engoron found Trump's comments to be directed at his law clerk, which he deemed to be unacceptable. Trump, however, claimed that his comments were targeted at the judge's law clerk.

Engoron awarded him a penalty of $10,000 and gave him a stern warning to not do it again.

Later, Trump's lawyer Alina Habba asked the judge for a direct verdict based on Cohen's testimony that states Trump never directly told him to inflate his net worth. However, this motion was dismissed, and a visibly red and angry Trump stormed out of the courtroom.

Much of Trump's gripe with the case has centered around Cohen. The discontent defendant has labeled Cohen as a "rat" and a "liar". Furthermore, the two have a controversial history together.
