The White House has announced it will not support a stand-alone bill providing aid only to Israel following Iran’s recent attack.

National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby voiced the administration’s position, saying, “We are opposed to a stand-alone bill that would just work on Israel, as we’ve seen proposed. We would oppose a stand-alone bill, yes.” Kirby added, “Time is not on anyone’s side here in either case, so they need to move quickly on this.”

This comes after Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) indicated a coming vote on Israel aid. On Fox News, Johnson said, “House Republicans and the Republican Party understand the necessity of standing with Israel. We’re going to try again this week, and the details of that package are being put together. Right now, we’re looking at the options and all these supplemental issues.”

Previously, the House attempted to pass a stand-alone Israel aid bill due to insufficient support. This bill was intended to support Israel in its ongoing conflict with Hamas.

What the White House wants:
The White House has been consistently pushing for a comprehensive $95 billion national security supplemental, which includes $60 billion of military aid for Ukraine.
