At a joint presser, Joe Biden called on reporters from a pre-approved list. When asked about American hostages in Gaza, the President’s response was somewhat snarky.
The reporter inquired whether the hostages were in danger if there was to be a ground invasion of Gaza. This followed reports that Israel had agreed to delay a ground invasion in order for the US to provide them with additional Iron Dome missiles after Hamas terrorists killed more than 1,300 Jews earlier this month.
“Israel has agreed to delay an expected invasion of Gaza for now so that the United States can rush missile defenses to the region to protect U.S. troops there, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing U.S. and Israeli officials.”
“U.S. officials have so far persuaded Israel to hold off until U.S. air-defense systems can be placed in the region, as early as later this week, the WSJ said.” – Reuters said.
Biden snapped at the reporter: “You wanna make a speech?”
