Pro-Palestinian protesters swarmed the White House gates on Saturday evening, demanding a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip while chastising President Joe Biden for siding with Israel in its war against Hamas.
Hundreds if not thousands of people, many of whom carried signs or the Palestinian flag, amassed outside the northern fence. They chanted anti-Biden slogans such as “Genocide Joe” and “F*** Joe Biden.”
Biden, who was in Delaware when the protesters came knocking, has reaffirmed U.S. support for Israel in the wake of Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attacks on Israeli soil that killed an estimated 1,400-plus people, including 33 Americans.
