Joe Biden

Former Vice President

Running

As Vice-President to Barack Obama, Biden played a key role in advancing the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal.

The Obama-Biden administration was undoubtedly one of the most anti-Israel administrations in our nation’s history, regularly disrespecting this important ally.

Once supported a fence to stop ‘tons’ of drugs from Mexico, but now opposes President Trump’s wall. Was a part of the Obama administration that gave amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

Tulsi Gabbard

U.S. Representative (HI)

Dropped-Out

On the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal: “I voted for it because I could not find a better alternative.”

On an immigration compromise that would fund the wall: “No.”

Has a mixed record on Israel, calling the U.S.-Israeli alliance “important” but refusing to condemn the U.N. resolution disapproving of Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Bernie Sanders

U.S. Senator (VT)

Running

Called re-instating sanctions on Iran “reckless” and “dangerous.”

Called $5.7 billion for border security a waste in 2018 after voting for $46 billion in 2013.

Boycotted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress in 2015 and has referred to the Israeli government as “racist.”

Elizabeth Warren

U.S. Senator (MA)

Dropped-Out

Called leaving the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal, “a recipe for disaster.”

Has described the border wall as “a monument to hate” and proposed decriminalizing illegal immigration.

Refuses to support legislation to weaken efforts to boycott Israel and has defended Rep. Ilhan Omar’s comments against Israel. 

Amy Klobuchar

U.S. Senator (MN)

Dropped-Out

Voted for the Iran Nuclear Deal and promised to re-enter in within the first 100 days of her presidency.

Supports amnesty for millions of illegal amnesty and flip-flopped on supporting a border wall.

The only Senate Democrat running for President to vote for a 2019 bill weakening efforts to boycott Israel.

Pete Buttigieg

Mayor (South Bend, IN)

Dropped-Out

Buttigieg called President Trump’s effort to increase sanctions on Iran, “chest-thumping militarism” and has described the dangerous Iran deal as “the real ‘art of the deal'”

Buttigieg called sending troops to defend our southern border, “embarrassing.”

Buttigieg has threatened to pull U.S. aid to Israel if Israel annexes Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Michael Bloomberg

Former Mayor (New York, NY)

Dropped-Out

Bloomberg has criticized President Trump’s border wall as “not very practical” and that it would be “impossible to build.”

Tom Steyer

Hedge Fund Manager

Dropped-Out

Steyer called President Trump’s moving of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem “very scary” and “very dangerous”

 

Steyer has previously pledged to invest $1 million to protect illegal immigrants from deportation and his PAC NextGen America has advocated for “no border wall ever.”

Steyer’s PAC NextGen America advocates for increased taxes and government spending in order to pay for radical proposals like The Green New Deal and single-payer healthcare.

Kamala Harris

U.S. Senator (CA)

Dropped-Out

Called President Trump “reckless” for withdrawing from the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal and has promised to rejoin it as President. 

Called building a wall to keep out illegal aliens “a total waste of money” that she “won’t support.”

Harris has previously been supportive of Israel but recently voted against legislation that would weaken efforts to boycott Israel.

Cory Booker

U.S. Senator (NJ)

Dropped-Out

Broke with fellow New Jersey Democrat Bob Menendez in supporting the dangerous Iran Nuclear Deal, despite calling it “deeply flawed”

On immigration: “We should be building bridges not walls, building tunnels in this region, not walls.”

While previously co-sponsoring legislation to oppose efforts to boycott the state of Israel, Booker voted against the most recent anti-boycott piece of legislation in 2019.

Andrew Yang

Entrepreneur

Dropped-Out

Yang has stated that he would rejoin the dangerous Iran deal and reduce sanctions on Iran. 

Yang has been neutral on Israel in his public statements.

While Yang has said that the border crisis needs addressing, he has advocated for amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.
