WASHINGTON 16 March: US President Joe Biden said on Friday that Senator Chuck Schumer gave a good speech and reflected the feelings of Americans after Schumer publicly cut ties with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the Gaza war.

Although Biden said there had been no change in administration policy on Israel, Biden’s remarks about Schumer’s speech could create a shift in sentiment.

Schumer’s speech came as a surprise to many and was criticized by many Republicans. “I’m not going to elaborate on his speech; he gave a good speech,” Biden said.

“I think Schumer highlighted an issue that is of concern to many Americans,” Biden added. In his speech, Schumer targeted Netanyahu, saying he was the main obstacle to peace in the Middle East.

Schumer said Netanyahu “has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take precedence over the best interests of Israel”.

The tensions between the Biden administration and the Netanyahu administration continue to grow due to the lack of a breakthrough in negotiations on the Gaza war.
