"He's got the wrong words. He doesn't know who he's backing. And it's a mess. And if this were me, they'd be after me, they'd be after me so much, but they're trying to get him a pass. And what's going on is a disgrace to our country. And it's all Biden's fault, and everybody knows it. He's got no message, he's got no compassion and doesn't know what he's doing," Trump added, branding Biden the “worst president in the history of our country.”

‘And I can tell you he's no friend of Israel’

Trump also said that Biden is "no friend of Israel" or the "Arab world." "It all starts with Joe Biden. The signals he puts out are so bad. And I can tell you he's no friend of Israel, that's for sure. And he's no friend of the Arab world either," Trump said.

"He wants to take like a middle ground. And oftentimes that doesn't work, but it's certainly not working here. But what he's done to Israel is abandon them, and he's trying to be as nice as he can to the other side," he added.

Joe Biden condemns the protests

Student demonstrations have begun to intensify across the US amid the Israel-Hamas conflict. The White House and Biden previously condemned the protests. "I condemn the antisemitic protests. That’s why I have set up a program to deal with that. I also condemn those who don't understand what's going on with the Palestinians," Biden told reporters Monday, April 22, according to Fox News.
