'I DON'T AGREE': Fetterman Blasts Biden's Backpedal on Israel, 'Astonishing We're Not Firmly' with Them [WATCH]

Keystone State Senator John Fetterman spoke with CNN’s Jake Tapper on State of the Union Sunday and said it’s “astonishing that we are not standing firmly with Israel.”

Fetterman reacted to the 185 one-way suicide drones, 110 surface-to-surface missiles, and 36 cruise missiles that Iran directed at Israel.

“When a nation can launch hundreds of drones towards Israel, I’m not going to be talking about conditions — ever,” Fetterman said.

President Biden told Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. would not support a retaliatory strike against Iran.

“I don’t agree with that,” Fetterman said.

“And I just think we should follow and have Israel’s back in this situation,” he added. “I don’t agree with the president.”

Fetterman said that he would “never capitulate to the fringe” — meaning the far-Left of the Democratic Party. “I will never pander to that as well. In fact, that helps, that empowers Hamas. And Hamas is actually convinced that they are winning the PR war, and they’re never going to negotiate at this point.”

“They think they’re going to hold on to the very end,” he continued. “And I know why they’re not willing to provide any kind of proof of life. And I don’t know why there’s not more of that conversation in the media. Like, what about the hostages? What’s happened to them? Where are they now? And let’s just bring them home.”
