Earlier in the day, Waltz explained to Fox News that he did not agree with Pelosi that it was time to move on because the Squad’s rhetoric has been consistent."This isn’t just a one-time incident, we have Rep. [Rashida] Tlaib [D-Mich.], comparing Israel to Apartheid, we’ve had … a series of incidences in 2019 that led to another censure resolution," Waltz told Fox News’ Sandra Smith."This is a trend, and this is why I think you’re seeing my Democratic colleagues of Jewish-American background also saying enough is enough, it’s time to speak out, and it’s time to stop this."
