U.S. Senators such as Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) shared similar thought processes as concerns about global warfare have reached a new peak. They both believe that former President Donald Trump (R) is the right man for the job.
Recently, a hostage deal surrounding the Israel-Hamas war was brokered to initially include mostly women and children, and a 4-day temporary ceasefire. According to CNN, Hamas has released 17 more hostages – including a 4-year-old American dual citizen – and wants to extend the cease-fire “beyond Monday.”
The initial deal was announced on the night of Nov. 21.
For instance, Sen. Cotton said on “Fox News Sunday” that the continued captivity of American hostages in Gaza "would have never happened under Donald Trump."

Sen. Cotton said, "After Donald Trump directed the killing of Qasem Soleimani in Iraq, Iran's terrorist mastermind, Iran pulled in its horns for the rest of the Trump era. The way to stop these attacks is not to be fearful and hesitant and cautious in our response, but massive retaliation that makes it clear we will not tolerate these attacks on Americans."
“Even people that don’t like what Trump says have to admit that the country was safer, more respected, we didn’t have a mass migration crisis, our economy was better, all these things when Trump was in office,” said Rubio. “I think there are a lot of people that are like, no matter what we may feel about what he said about this or that, our lives were better and the country was safer.”
Rubio, who helped frame Trump’s Western Hemisphere policies, added that under the Biden administration's foreign policy, the “unity in the region” has splintered and that many countries have now “flipped” from being Democratic to now being controlled by Socialist or Leftist presidents and governments.
“We went from having a unity in the region that aligned with our views, including the Caribbean, to now a bunch of countries that have flipped, and a bunch of countries that want to be friendly to the United States that feel like this administration treats their friend bad, and their enemies good,” said Rubio.
Sen. Rubio has not endorsed a presidential candidate yet.
