Halie Soifer, executive director for the Jewish Democratic Council of America, told the Post that as President-elect Biden develops his legislative agenda, he will “continue to bridge policy differences within the Democratic Caucus and ensure that all voices are heard.

“Progressive Democrats were a part of the largest political coalition in American history that elected Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, but no one segment of this coalition will change Joe Biden’s views,” she noted.

According to Soifer, Biden has made his policy positions clear throughout his career, in his campaign, and in the Democratic Party Platform, “which was unanimously adopted this summer and underscores Democrats’ strong support of Israel.” She said that Biden will continue to surround himself “with leaders who share his values, including on Israel, as demonstrated by his national security appointments.”
