Rubio shared his comments in a tweet containing photos of the Iranian ships and condemned Biden for his “desperation.”

“#Iran’s largest military vessel & most modern missile destroyer are days away from delivering missiles & attack boats to the #MaduroRegime & conducting exercises off our coast,” Rubio wrote.

“Biden shouldn’t allow desperation to salvage the Iran deal to keep him from confronting this forcefully,” the Florida senator continued.

On Thursday, Iran announced that it was sending two warships into the Atlantic Ocean. The country did not disclose where the warships were headed.
