PresidentBiden‘s trying to win over an important voting block in Michigan… and a war taking place a world apart is playing a major role, including new policies that he’s enforcing.
POTUS made a few stops this week in Michigan, an important swing state for the 2024 presidential elections. It looks like he is trying to win Arab American and Muslim votes who are outraged by the war between Israel & Palestine.
Biden’s Michigan visit coincides with the signing of an executive order that allows the United States government to sanction Israeli settlers and possibly Israeli government officials who are involved in violent assaults against Palestinians in Gaza.
Biden has been under fire for his support of Israel in Michigan… and a large Arab American population lives in the state and they are threatening to withdraw their support at the polling booth.
Although the scenes were tense and tense, there were protests outside Biden’s Michigan campaign stops.
Biden could have signed this EO in order to have something tangible he could show to Michigan voters who support Palestine… to avoid losing their vote to a Third Party, or worse. Donald Trump. It’s what some people are interpreting.
Biden is also said to have run out of patience with Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu. Benjamin NetanyahuSo it appears that the winds are changing in Gaza.
Biden needs Michigan to stop Trump… and it appears that the political posturing has gotten into full swing as we move towards November.
The time will tell if these moves are successful in retaining this group of voters.
