Burgum Accuses Biden Of Negotiating For Terrorists

 May 14, 2024

Governor Doug Burgum of North Dakota leveled serious allegations against President Joe Biden, accusing him of withholding critical munitions from Israel.

As reported by Breitbart News, Burgum claimed that Biden is negotiating on behalf of terrorists to secure votes from the pro-Hamas segment of the Democratic party.

Appearing on Fox News's "America’s Newsroom," Burgum expressed his concerns about the Biden administration's recent decision to withhold 3,500 bombs from Israel amidst its conflict with Hamas.

Biden's Weapon Withholding Sparks Controversy

Governor Burgum's accusations come in the wake of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin confirming the withholding of a shipment of weapons to Israel. Austin cited concerns about Israeli actions in Rafah, a city in the Gaza Strip, as the reason for the decision. President Biden reiterated this stance, stating on CNN that the U.S. would limit weapons transfers to Israel based on their operational decisions in populated areas like Rafah.

Burgum criticized this approach, arguing that it undermines U.S. support for its allies. He emphasized that Biden should be negotiating alongside Israel instead of imposing conditions that appear to favor Hamas. The North Dakota governor's comments reflect a broader Republican criticism of Biden's foreign policy.

Burgum and Republicans Criticize Biden

The controversy over the munitions has given Republican officials a platform to criticize Biden. Some have even drafted impeachment articles against the president, accusing him of negotiating on behalf of terrorists. Burgum's remarks are part of a larger narrative pushed by Republicans, who compare Biden's foreign policy unfavorably to that of former President Donald Trump.

Burgum's potential role as a vice-presidential candidate for Trump in the upcoming elections adds another layer to his comments. He endorsed Trump after dropping out of the presidential race and has since gained visibility at Trump campaign rallies.

Biden's Stance on Israel's Actions

President Biden's public statements have clarified his administration's stance on Israel's military operations. "I’ve made it clear to Bibi [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu] and the War Cabinet. They’re not going to get our support if, in fact, they go into these population centers," Biden said on CNN. This conditional support is based on concerns about civilian casualties in densely populated areas like Rafah.

Gov. Burgum, however, sees this as a betrayal of a key U.S. ally. "When you think about that, think of every one of our allies around the world watching this and going, ‘Wow, Israel is supposed to be America’s top ally and the president is threatening them?’" he stated during his Fox News appearance.

Republicans Push Back Against Biden

The controversy has become a focal point for Republican critiques of Biden's foreign policy. Former President Trump has backed Burgum, highlighting his potential role in a future administration. This support has bolstered Burgum's profile as a potential vice-presidential pick.

Burgum's statements also align with broader Republican accusations that Biden's foreign policy is weak. They argue that the withholding of munitions from Israel fits into a pattern of decisions that undermine U.S. allies and embolden adversaries.


Governor Doug Burgum's accusations against President Joe Biden have stirred significant political debate. Burgum claims Biden's withholding of munitions from Israel amounts to negotiating on behalf of terrorists. The Biden administration cites concerns about Israeli actions in populated areas as the reason for the withholding.

This controversy has become a key point of criticism for Republicans, with Burgum emerging as a prominent voice. As the political landscape evolves, the implications of these accusations will continue to unfold.
