Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has accused President Joe Biden of supporting genocide against Palestinians. In a recent social media post, Tlaib used strong language to describe President Biden’s stance during the conflict between Israel and Hamas, linking it with potential implications for future elections.
Congresswoman Tlaib said, “Joe Biden supported the genocide of the Palestinian people. The American people won’t forget. Biden, support the ceasefire now,” and “Or don’t count on us in 2024.”
The White House, while avoiding direct engagement with Tlaib’s accusations, emphasized its stance on the conflict. A spokesperson articulated the administration’s support for “humanitarian pauses” but opposed a permanent ceasefire, stating, “What we do not support are calls for Israel to stop defending itself from Hamas terrorists.”
This comes as the United Nations has expressed concerns about the dire situation in Gaza. Meanwhile, Israel defends its military actions as targeting Hamas, accusing the group of endangering civilians by using them as human shields.
