Former Vice President Joe Biden advised President Donald Trump to take advice from his national security advisers when responding to escalating tensions with Iran.

The presidential hopeful earlier called Trump "dangerously incompetent" while claiming he is on the brink taking the U.S. into another war in the Middle East.

After Iran launched several missile strikes against military bases used by US troops in Iraq, with the Iranian regime threatening to strike Israel, and even Dubai, Biden said:

“I just pray to God as [Trump] goes through what’s happening, as we speak, that he’s listening to his military commanders for the first time because so far that has not been the case."

Biden also branded the president's decision to take out Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani as “haphazard."

The presidential candidate accused Trump of inadequately consulting Congress or U.S. allies before carrying out the attack.

Both House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi echoed Biden's sentiment saying Trump killed the terrorist “without the consultation of the Congress.”

“Democracy runs on accountability,” Biden said.

“No one wants war. But it’s going to take hard work to make sure we don’t end up there accidentally.”

Following the U.S.-led attack on Soleimani, Biden tried to stand out among his 2020 contenders with his decades' worth of foreign policy experience.

But his track record came under scrutiny after he was forced to shed light on his contradictory accounts on his role in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden in 2011.

Biden previously said he advised President Barack Obama not to execute the operation.

But Biden told a reporter this was not true, which conflicted the accounts by several other top Obama officials.

"No, I didn't, I didn't," Biden said.

Biden's description of his stance of the decision-making method behind the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, has morphed over the years.

In 2012, he said his advice was, "don’t go."

But by 2015, he said he had privately told Obama to "go."

Biden called the crisis in Iran “totally of Donald Trump’s making,” and said Soleimani's death was due to Trump's decision to withdraw from a multilateral deal in which Iran had agreed to curtail its nuclear program.
