Welcome back to another TFG Exclusive Interview! Today, Mike Sperrazza is joined by Joe Kent. Joe Kent, a retired Green Beret combat veteran and Gold Star husband, is a GOP endorsed candidate for Congress in Washington’s Third Congressional district. His perspective on the escalating Israel-Hamas conflict and US involvement in the Middle East is shaped by his extensive experience in the region. Kent believes that the recent uptick in violence is significant due to the involvement of Iran, which he argues funds proxies like Hamas when it is most beneficial to them. He advocates for a cautious approach, warning against further involvement that could lead to the US being drawn back into the Middle Eastern quagmire. Instead, Kent suggests using economic leverage and focusing on energy independence to approach the situation from a position of strength. He also emphasizes the need to address border security, as he believes that enemies, including radical jihadists, are exploiting the US border. Join Mike Sperrazza and Joe Kent as they delve deeper into these issues on this TFG Exclusive Interview.
