Joe Biden on America’s Continued Commitment to Israel Following Donald Trump’s Election Victory in a Speech to the World Jewish Congress

November 10, 2016

I stand here to tell you that I have no doubt, none whatsoever, that in the Trump administration there will be no diminution of support as a consequence of this transition. Even if the new administration were inclined to reduce the commitment, which it is not, Congress would never let it happen, the American people would never let it happen. You measure your influence on how well you influence me, presidents, vice presidents, secretaries, senators, congressmen. But your influence on the American community at large has been profound. That’s the ultimate guarantor that every American president, and every transition, will never dare, even if they're inclined—and the Trump admin is not inclined—to reduce levels of support.
