Biden Fails to Honor Pledge on Negotiating for Hostages

They took the hostages back to the Gaza Strip. Although Hamas has released some of them in the months since, they still have approximately 130 hostages. President Joe Biden is now being criticized for allegedly failing to honor a pledge.

During an interview with Seth Meyers, the late-night host pressed Biden about a call for a ceasefire. The president responded by saying there was a way to move forward, but “the hostages being held must be released.” He said there was an agreement made by Israel that they would not “engage in activities during Ramadan” so Israel and its allies could “get all the hostages out.” Ramadan begins on March 10.

In another interview, Biden said that he was hoping there would be a ceasefire “by next Monday,” which would have been March 4.

The date came and went without a ceasefire or the release of any hostages.

Vice President Kamala Harris tried to placate Democrats by calling for an “immediate ceasefire” in Gaza during a trip to Selma, Alabama, on March 3. The next day, she met with Benny Gantz, an Israeli official. Like her boss, she failed to negotiate anything meaningful and instead spent her time talking to him about getting humanitarian aid into Gaza and stressing the importance of a ceasefire.

Breitbart News accused President Biden of failing to honor his pledge that the hostages would be released by March 4. The Conservative website claimed the POTUS broke the pledge he made the night before the Michigan primary, where more than 100,000 Democrats voted “uncommitted.” The large number of Arab American and Muslim people in the state are believed to have contributed to the protest vote in the critical state.

Biden hasn’t commented on his failure to negotiate the release of the hostages.
