Keystone State Senator John Fetterman spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper Tuesday night and shared his thoughts on the growing number of people who get their news and opinions from TikTok.

“Seventy-two percent of young voters, according to this new poll, disapprove of how President Biden is handling the Israel-Hamas war,” Tapper said. “You’ve been very vocal in your full support for Israel. I see the Israeli flag behind you in your office there. You’ve been very clearly arguing that Hamas bears responsibility for the tragedy of what’s going on in Gaza.”

“Why do you think so many younger people, especially in your party, see it differently?” Tapper asked.

“I really, I really don’t know. I do know that a lot of people are getting their perspective from TikTok,” Fetterman responded. “And I think if you’re kind of getting your perspective on the world on TikTok, it’s going to tend to be kind of warped or not reflective of the history and actually the way things absolutely are.”

“And what is very clear is, is that Hamas started this and they actually broke the ceasefire and they attacked and murdered babies, children, women – attacked a music concert and everything,” he continued. “It’s outrageous. And from now on, it’s been very clear that Israel would very much want there to be peace. But they’ve made it very clear that after October 7, that’s just not possible so long as Hamas is allowed to exist.”

Fetterman has surprised many on the Hill as he’s moved to distance himself from the far-left squad —especially on the issues of Israel and immigration.
