Speaker Johnson Statement on Biden Threat to Veto Israel Aid

WASHINGTON, DC — Speaker Johnson released the following statement on President Biden’s threat to veto the Israel Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, which would provide $17.6 billion in military assistance to Israel and supports U.S. forces in the region.

“The President’s veto threat is an act of betrayal,” said Speaker Johnson.  “Israel is at war, fighting for its very right to exist, while our brave men and women in uniform are in harm’s way on his orders to deter Iran. In threatening to veto aid to Israel and to our military forces, President Biden is abandoning our ally in its time of greatest need. I urge friends of Israel and opponents of Iran to call the President’s bluff and pass this clean aid package.”
