Former US Ambassador to the UN and candidate for the 2024 US Presidential election Nikki Haley criticized the Biden Administration for interfering in Israel's domestic politics by getting involved in the controversy over the Israeli government's proposed judicial reforms.
"It’s outrageous for Joe Biden to lecture Israel on a matter that is entirely their domestic concern. We would never want the Israeli government to push America on issues surrounding our Supreme Court, and they wouldn’t do it. We should let Israelis decide this themselves," Haley said Wednesday.
Haley was not the only Republican politician to criticize the administration for its response to the judicial reform controversy in Israel.
Earlier Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz wrote on Twitter: "Utterly disgraceful. Biden gleefully hosts anti-American radicals like Lula, while shunning close American allies like Netanyahu. It's clear that Biden and his officials are high from funding what they believe to be successful anti-government protests in Israel."
On Tuesday, Biden commented on the judicial reform issue, stating: “Like many strong supporters of Israel, I'm very concerned. I'm concerned that they get this straight. They cannot continue down this road. I've sort of made that clear.”
