Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appeared on Fox News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle the other night.
Gaetz argued that Barack Obama’s failed Iran nuclear deal is the reason for the rise in hostilities between the United States and Iran.
President Trump made a comment after the attack from Iran in retaliation for the successful strike by the U.S. that killed the Iranian terrorist General Qasim Soleimani.

Trump said, “The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration.”
That is because as part of the Iran nuclear deal they received billions of dollars from Obama.
However, now we are witnessing the Trump doctrine with regards to the United States’ handling of Iran according to Gaetz.
Gaetz said, “If the president wanted war with Iran, he’s had plenty of opportunities.”
“He’s chosen to exercise restraint, and I think we’re seeing the Trump doctrine.”
“It’s one where we strike and then move.”
“We don’t invade and then try to persuade people that we’re liberators.”
The Florida Republican said the violence underway could be tied to the Iran deal brokered by the Obama administration
and said he hoped President Donald Trump’s handling of the situation would not be a continuation of the previous administration’s policy.
