White House Says Trump Admin Did Nothing to Help Middle East Conflict

The White House on Tuesday said that aside from a “dead on arrival” peace plan, the Trump administration didn’t do “anything constructive” to end the conflict in the Middle East.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was defending the Biden administration‘s approach to the ongoing violence between Israeli forces and Palestinian militants, and maintained that a “two-state solution” is the only option for “lasting” peace in the region.

Psaki told reporters on Tuesday that the Biden administration is “not following the same tactics of the prior administration” with its strategy to de-escalate tensions in the region.

“Aside from putting forward a peace proposal that was dead on arrival, we don’t think they did anything constructive, really, to bring an end to the long-standing conflict in the Middle East,” Psaki told reporters. “So obviously, we’re dealing with a conflict that is happening, as we speak. It is happening on the ground. People’s lives are lost. There’s ongoing violence, we’re going to work to resolve that.”
