Speaker Johnson: Biden Carrying Water for Hamas, Iran

House Speaker Mike Johnson on Wednesday accused President Joe Biden of “carrying water for Hamas and Iran” after the White House announced he would veto the Israel Security Assistance Support Act, which if signed into law would compel the United States to send defense weapons to Israel.
