White House highlights opposition to ceasefire by Biden allies, amid far-left calls in favor

Jacob Magid is The Times of Israel's US bureau chief

White House deputy communications director Herbie Ziskind tweets out quotes from Democratic Representative Jake Auchincloss of Massachusetts and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, allies of US President Joe Biden who hold opposing views, but have both voiced opposition to a ceasefire in Gaza.

The move appears aimed at demonstrating widespread support for Biden’s opposition to a ceasefire, despite growing calls from far-left lawmakers and groups who are pushing for one.

Biden is instead calling for humanitarian pauses to allow for the safe passage of aid, civilians, and to assist the hostage release effort.
