Former President Donald Trump accused President Joe Biden of abandoning Israel on Wednesday, adding that any Jew who votes for Biden or any Democrat should “have their head examined.”

“Biden has totally lost control of the Israel situation,” Trump said to reporters ahead of a fundraiser in Atlanta, Georgia. “He has abandoned Israel, he has totally abandoned Israel, and frankly you know he’s a low-IQ individual.”

“He has no idea where he is and who he is supporting,” the former president added. “He doesn’t know if he is supporting the Palestinians but he knows one thing: he is not supporting Israel. He has abandoned Israel and any Jewish person that votes for a Democrat or votes for Biden should have their head examined.”

Biden criticized Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and called for a six to eight-week ceasefire in Gaza, without mentioning a deal to free hostages in an interview aired Tuesday with Univision.

“What I’m calling for is for the Israelis to just call for a ceasefire, allow for the next six, eight weeks, total access to all food and medicine going into the country,” Biden said. “I’ve spoken with everyone from the Saudis to the Jordanians to the Egyptians. They’re prepared to move in.”

A senior White House Official said there is no change to the president’s position and that the administration is calling for a ceasefire that includes a hostage deal, according to the Times of Israel

Biden also called Netanyahu’s approach to the war “a mistake.”

“I think it’s outrageous that those… three vehicles were hit by drones and taken out on a highway,” he added in reference to the IDF strike on a World Central Kitchen convoy last week that killed seven aid workers.

Trump made similar comments about Jewish Biden voters on Monday night, accusing them of not loving Israel. 

“Any Jewish person that votes for Biden does not love Israel and frankly, should be spoken to,” Trump said according to the Times of Israel. “How a Jewish person can vote for Biden or a Democrat because they are on the side 100% of the Palestinians”

“Frankly, it’s incredible that historically Jewish people vote for Democrats. I don’t understand that,” he added. “Maybe it’s just a bad habit when you vote for a Democrat, but I don’t know how anybody that is Jewish votes for a Democrat.”

In an interview with Israel Hayom last month, Trump said he supported Israel’s war against Hamas, calling the October 7 massacre “one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen,” and said “only a fool” would not respond the way Israel did, Jewish News Syndicate reported.

He added that Israel needs to “finish up” the war and “get it done.”

“And I will say, Israel has to be very careful, because you’re losing a lot of the world, you’re losing a lot of support, you have to finish up, you have to get the job done,” he said. “And you have to get on to peace, to get on to a normal life for Israel, and for everybody else.”

Trump, who was the broker of the Abraham Accords to bring more peace to the Middle East, met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who has not yet signed onto the accords, according to the New York Times. Saudi Arabia was expected to follow the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco in the peace agreements until Biden was reelected and progress ceased.
