Quick Glance: VP Contenders Criticized Trump
  • Some potential vice presidential candidates criticized Trump but are now willing to serve by his side.

  • Candidates' loyalty to Trump is primarily assessed based on their post-January 6, 2021, behaviors.

  • The front-runners for the position are North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and Senators Marco Rubio, J.D. Vance, and Tim Scott.

  • Past criticisms of Trump have not heavily impacted the selection process, as candidates strive to enhance their relationship with him and demonstrate loyalty.

Netanyahu to address US Congress on 24 July
Quick Glance: Netanyahu's Address to US Congress on July 24
  • Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to address a joint meeting of Congress on July 24, setting the stage for a contentious speech at a crucial moment in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war.

  • Netanyahu's appearance before a growingly divided Congress is sure to be controversial and met with protests both inside the Capitol from lawmakers and outside by pro-Palestinian demonstrators.

  • The relationship between President Joe Biden and the leader of the Jewish state has increasingly frayed, with Biden criticizing Netanyahu's handling of the war and the Israeli government's humanitarian aid restrictions in Gaza.

  • Some Democratic lawmakers critical of Netanyahu's strategy are expected to be absent from the address. Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont stated, 'Netanyahu is a war criminal. I certainly will not attend.'
