Biden issues veto threat over “misguided” GOP bill requiring unconditional support for Gaza genocide

Source: The Hill

“The White House said Tuesday that President Biden would veto a House GOP bill intended to pressure him to send weapons to Israel, calling it a ‘misguided reaction to a deliberate distortion of the Administration’s approach to Israel.’ The pushback comes ahead of an expected vote this week on the Israel Security Assistance Support Act. GOP lawmakers introduced the bill after Biden warned he would withhold certain offensive weapons for Israel if its forces invaded Rafah in Gaza. But the White House cautioned that the legislation ‘would undermine the President’s ability to execute an effective foreign policy.’ … The U.S. already paused a shipment of bombs to Israel earlier this month over concerns of a looming full-scale invasion of Rafah.” (05/14/24)
