Buttigieg: America won’t foot the bill of West Bank settlement annexation

In his first major foreign policy address as a Democratic presidential candidate, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg warns that if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “makes good on his threat to annex West Bank settlements, he should know that a President Buttigieg would take steps to ensure American taxpayers won’t help foot the bill.”

He adds that it is possible to be pro-Israel while criticizing Netanyahu’s “right-wing” government, which has “turned away from peace.”
