In a “60 Minutes” interview, Joe Biden said America has an “obligation” to be involved in both the Israel and Ukraine conflicts.

“Are the wars in Israel and Ukraine more than the United States can take on at the same time?” Scott Pelley asked.

“We’re the United States of America for God’s sake! The most powerful nation in the history, not in the world, in the history of the world! The history of the world!” Biden responded.

“We can take care of both of these and still maintain our overall international defense. We have the capacity to do this and we have an obligation to. We are the essential nation, to, to paraphrase the former secretary of State. And if we don’t who does?” he continued.


Joe Biden will visit Israel this week as the Hamas conflict continues.
