US President Joe Biden will discuss rising levels of antisemitism in a May 7 speech at a museum dedicated to remembering Holocaust victims, the White House says.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tells reporters Biden will address “the rising scourge of antisemitism” in his speech. It comes as college campuses face growing protests over US support for Israel in its conflict with Hamas.
