As Israel engages in what it sees as a crucial fight for its survival against Hamas, the critique from Trump highlights a significant rift in how different US political factions view support for the Jewish state.

Initially portraying himself as a steadfast ally of Israel, Biden’s approach seems to have shifted, notably evidenced by his “come to Jesus moment” comment regarding Netanyahu.

In an interview, Biden said, “What’s happening is [Netanyahu] has a right to defend Israel, a right to continue to pursue Hamas, but he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost.”
