Biden defends strikes on Houthis, vows to respond again

February 28, 2024

President Joe Biden speaks to the press, as he visits Allentown Fire Training Academy, in Allentown, Pa., Jan. 12, 2024. Asked for his message to Iran, Biden said, "I already delivered the message to Iran. "This strike was two months overdue, but it is a good first step toward restoring deterrence in the Red Sea," said. California Democrat Ro Khanna, a Biden campaign surrogate, also said Biden should've come to Congress and that his action was "unconstitutional." Earlier this week, ahead of the strikes, other Republican presidential hopefuls criticized Biden as being too slow to respond to the Houthi attacks in the Red Sea during a primary debate.
