Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders recently proclaimed that President Joe Biden has placed himself in a politically-compromised position by getting behind Israel in the Israel-Hamas war.

Sanders made these comments during an interview appearance on CNN on May 2, 2024. 

He made a 1960s era analogy by pointing to then-President Lyndon Johnson’s move to not run in 1968 due to the anti-war protests that his government had to confront at the time. Countless student activists took to the streets to protest the war in Vietnam, which placed major pressure on the Johnson administration to reconsider its escalation of the conflict. 

“I worry very much that President Biden is putting himself in a position where he has alienated not just young people, but a lot of the Democratic base in terms of his views on Israel and this war,” Sanders stated.
