Biden and Trump react to campus protests

In the wake of the college campus protests, both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump voiced their opinions on the issue, with obvious disagreements.

President Biden said that while he condemns antisemitism, he said he also condemned those who don’t empathize with Palestine.

In response to Biden’s soft stance on the plight of Jewish students, White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates told the Washington Examiner that,

…calls for violence and physical intimidation targeting Jewish students and the Jewish community are blatantly Antisemitic, unconscionable, and dangerous — they have absolutely no place on any college campus, or anywhere in the United States of America.

Meanwhile, former President Trump called the antisemitic attacks on Jewish students a “disgrace.”
