Following Israel’s ban of congresswomen Ilhan Omar (Democrat, Minnesota) and Rashida Tlaib (Democrat, Michigan), 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden took to twitter saying: “I have always been a stalwart supporter of Israel—a vital partner that shares our democratic values. No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas—even ideas they strongly object to. And no leader of the free world should encourage them to do so.”
Ironically, Joe Biden was Vice President when Obama banned entrance to Israeli parliament member Michael-Ben Ari in 2012.
