Joe Biden threw a tantrum and angrily hung up on a world leader after saying these four words

Feb 16, 2024

The Biden administration is under increasing pressure as Joe Biden tanks in the polls.

And that pressure is causing stress and short tempers in the White House to bubble up.

That’s why Joe Biden threw a tantrum and angrily hung up on a world leader after saying these four words.

President Joe Biden is becoming increasingly angry as the economy and his poll numbers continue to tank.

Foreign policy is causing even more pain for Joe Biden

And with wars raging in Ukraine and the Middle East, Biden’s foreign policy failures are crashing down on him as well.

According to new reports Biden is especially upset with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Biden is allegedly furious that his advice on running the war against Hamas and making peace with Palestinians is not being followed by the Israeli leader.

Left-wing publication Axios reported that the two leaders haven’t spoken since a December 23 call that, according to Biden administration officials, ended very badly.

As reported, Biden angrily ended the call by saying, “This conversation is over” and then hung up on the Israeli leader.

Biden’s temper tantrum was fueled by Netanyahu’s refusal to release tax revenue that is supposed to go to the Palestinian Authority which governs the West Bank.

But that’s not the only bone of contention between Israel and the Biden administration. 

Biden wants Israel to make humanitarian aid for Gaza a greater priority. 

And the Biden administration is pushing for a greater role for the Palestinian Authority in governing post-war Gaza. 

Israel is rejecting Joe Biden’s demands

But Israel is flat-out rejecting that idea.

The Biden administration is also becoming increasingly worried that Israel’s ground war in Gaza will make it ever more difficult to hold off Israel’s critics within Biden’s own party.

Axios quoted one Biden official as saying, “There is immense frustration,” while another administration official said, “The situation sucks and we are stuck. The president’s patience is running out.”

And some Democrats in Congress are now going public with their frustrations as well.

“At every juncture, Netanyahu has given Biden the finger. They are pleading with the Netanyahu coalition, but getting slapped in the face over and over again,” Democrat Senator Chris Van Hollen of Maryland said.

Democrat Senator Chris Coons of Delaware weighed in as well, telling Politico he might be willing to put conditions on any future military aid to Israel.

“It’s a self-defeating policy,” said Brian Finucane, a former State Department adviser on military force.

He continued, “What may be expedient in terms of short-term domestic politics may not be in the long-term interests of the United States. Particularly if it results in the United States involving itself in further unnecessary wars in the Middle East.” 

Biden’s Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been publicly pushing for a two-state solution in the conflict.

“From Israel’s perspective, if you can have a future where they’re integrated into the region, relations are normalized with other countries, where they have the necessary assurances, commitments, guarantees for their security — that’s a very attractive pathway,” Blinken said. “But it’s also clear that that requires a pathway to a Palestinian state. We’ve heard that from every single country in the region.”

But if Joe Biden continues to throw temper tantrums he will be hurting both himself and the American people.
