Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) slammed President Joe Biden for starting to cave on his position on Israel, saying it’s because he is worried about losing support from anti-Semitic Democrats in swing states ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Rubio made the remarks during a wide-ranging Sunday interview with Jonathan Karl on ABC News’ “This Week” as Rubio’s name begins to be floated as a potential vice presidential pick for former President Donald Trump.

“I’ll be frank. I think the president is worried about losing Minnesota and Michigan,” Rubio said. “He’s getting a lot of pressure from the pro-Hamas wing of the Democratic Party, a lot of activists and people like that.”

“You know, he’s getting heckled at speeches. He’s hearing a lot of complaints, and so, I think he’s trying to have it both ways, still stick with Israel to some extent, but also do things that signal to these people and try to appease them,” he said. “I saw yesterday, Secretary Blinken was overseas. Protesters outside of his hotel. I saw at the State of the Union where these pro-Hamas people were trying to block the president from getting to the State of the Union. They’re under a lot of political pressure and that’s what’s happening here.”

Rubio said that it was imperative that Israel wins the war because it was not acceptable for any country to live in constant fear of Islamic terrorist attacks.

“You cannot have a country in which this threat continues to exist. They have to finish this job,” he said. “And this fighting can end tomorrow. You want a ceasefire in Gaza, it’s very simple. Hamas, just surrender. No one is calling for Hamas to surrender and lay down their arms. That would end the conflict. That would end the conflict immediately.”
