"They're not wrong," Trump says of supporters chanting "Genocidal Joe"

Attendees at Donald Trump‘s campaign rally on Saturday evening chanted “Genocidal Joe” at the former President, using a phrase that pro-Palestinian activists have said about President Joe Biden.

Trump was speaking at a rally in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, US, on Saturday evening when the chanting began.

The crowd chanted “Genocidal Joe” and Trump paused his speech and turned around to survey the crowd.

“They are not wrong,” Trump said when he returned to the microphone.

They are not wrong. He did everything wrong.

The nickname for Biden is widely used by pro-Palestinian advocates to protest the US President’s support for Israel’s war effort in Gaza. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, more than 33,000 people, mostly women and children, have been killed in Israeli attacks since October 7.

Meanwhile, famine has already gripped Gaza, as a senior Biden administration official confirmed earlier this week. Israel’s actions came in response to an October 7 attack on Israel by Hamas militants that killed 1,200 people and took more than 200 hostages.

Trump’s explicit endorsement of this statement was surprising, given his previous enthusiastic support for Israeli aggression. However, a spokesperson for Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign clarified Trump’s official position.

“As President Trump said in his speech last night, he believes that America must stand with Israel 100 percent,” Karoline Leavitt, Trump’s campaign spokeswoman, told The Independent on Sunday.

However, other recent comments by Trump could be taken as a sign that his unwavering support for Israel is not guaranteed.

“You’ve got to end this and get back to normal,” Trump said in an interview on The Hugh Hewitt Show in recent weeks. The former President added that he wants Israel to “go back to peace and stop killing people”.

Just before his rally, Trump appeared to blame Biden for the Iranian attack on Israel on Saturday evening.

“ISRAEL IS UNDER ATTACK,” the former President wrote on the social media platform Truth Social.

This should never have been allowed to happen. If I was president, this would NEVER have happened!
