Biden Claims That Senator Schumer’s Speech Represented Many Americans

( – Joe Biden showed support for Senator Chuck Schumer’s speech and said that it was relatable to many Americans.

Biden explained the concerns when he publicly spoke about how Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu has been conducting the Israel-Gaza war. Tensions have been high between President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as they have not come to an agreement on a ceasefire. Biden has long requested that they agree on a ceasefire and that Israel and Palestine would be separate.

Biden spoke at an Oval Office meeting with Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar saying “I’m not going to elaborate on the speech. He made a good speech.” He continued, “I think he expressed a serious concern shared not only by him but by many Americans.”

“We need a ceasefire as soon as possible to get food and medicine in, to get the hostages out. We need to talk about how we can make that happen and move towards a two-state solution,” said Varadkar.

Biden then touched on the resurgence of Islamophobia since the war on Gaza began, saying, “That includes right here at home. I’ve said it many times: Islamophobia has no place in our nation.”

The United States has been supportive of Israel since the war began, but they are pushing for a two-state solution where they agree on a ceasefire. Schumer was against this state method. However, Schumer called for a new election after saying that Netanyahu “lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel”.

Alon Pinkas, retired Israeli Diplomat, said “For a Jewish senator from New York, the majority leader, a friend of Netanyahu who’s the most centrist possible Democrat to voice criticism like this? If you’ve lost Chuck Schumer, you’ve lost America.”

Israel has been taken care of by The United States for the majority of this war, as it is a major ally and has been supplying Israel with weapons, but the civilian death toll in Gaza is raising concern for many political leaders.
