Does Greenfield Support President Trump’s Historic Middle East Peace Deal?
How are Iowans supposed to trust Theresa to have our backs on foreign relations issues in the U.S. Senate?
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Today, President Trump took a historic step towards achieving peace in the Middle East. Under President Trump’s leadership, the United States helped Israel come to an agreement with both the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Today’s ceremony was an important and historic milestone in achieving peace in the tumultuous region, as these countries sign deals that will begin to normalize relations on everything from establishing embassies to air travel. Many are hopeful that this development will lead to future peace deals, including with Omar, Sudan, and Morocco.
While Republican Sens. Joni Ernst and Chuck Grassley have spoken out in support of these historic developments, Iowa Democrats -- including Ernst’s opponent Theresa Greenfield -- have been completely silent.
This comes as no surprise; the last time Greenfield tried to answer a foreign policy question, she failed miserably and demonstrated just how unprepared she is to lead.
WATCH: Greenfield is asked whether the president is on the right track in Afghanistan, and it’s clear Greenfield doesn’t have a clue:
Greenfield: “I’m not always clear as just an everyday Iowan, um, why, what and how. Um, but, as United States Senator I want to be clear. Um, so that I could speak up in favor or not in favor. Whether it’s, you know, whatever the locations are around the world.”
Bottom Line: Greenfield’s silence on strengthening foreign relations is deafening. It’s clear she doesn’t know anything about international policy, so how are Iowans supposed to trust Theresa to have our backs on foreign relations issues in the U.S. Senate? It’s a stark contrast to Joni Ernst, who served in Iraq and became the first female combat veteran to serve in the Senate.
