Blackburn Statement on Biden Trip to Israel

October 17, 2023

U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after reporting from the Washington Post that, “Biden’s trip to Israel was intentionally not announced until the U.S. received commitments from Netanyahu on a humanitarian package.”

“The USA should not be placing conditions on our support for Israel because of demands from the squad. Humanitarian aid repeatedly ends up in the hands of Hamas terrorists who use it to build rockets & kill more Israelis. We should immediately halt U.S. aid for the Palestinians.” – Senator Blackburn
