Netanyahu pushes back at Biden’s reproof

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu won’t be invited to the White House in the “near term,” US President Joe Biden told reporters on Tuesday, as he urged Israel to drop its judicial reform plan. He said in a speech in North Carolina that he was “very concerned” about the plan and hopes Netanyahu “would walk away from it… They cannot continue down this road,” he said.
