Auburn’s Bruce Pearl rips Biden administration over ‘weak US foreign policy decision’ in Iran deal

Auburn men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl ripped the Biden administration’s decision to strike a deal with Iran to swap prisoners and release $6 billion in frozen funds.

Pearl commented in a post on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. He was responding to commentary from Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. The senator wrote that President Biden “desecrates this day by paying ransom to the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism. Shameful.”

“The world just got even more dangerous by another pathetic, weak US foreign policy decision,” Pearl wrote. “Rather than giving Iran 6 Billion, I would give em a 6 days. Take another hostage and you get 6 hours. We just made Iran’s terrorist regime stronger! Free their people! Know your opponent!”

“While this is a step in the process, no individuals have been or will be released into U.S. custody this week. We have kept Congress extensively informed from the outset of this process – long before today – and we will continue to do so, including with additional already scheduled briefings this week.”
