In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Obama White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett offered some reaction to the upcoming address to a joint session of Congress by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu later in the day.
Jarrett insisted President Barack Obama remains committed to Israel’s security and preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
“As the president said yesterday, Mika, the speech has become a bit of a distraction,” Jarrett said. What’s important to keep in mind is the fundamental fact that the United States is Israel’s staunchest ally. The president is committed to the safety and security of Israel. We share a common goal of ensuring that Iran does not develop nuclear weapons. We may disagree about the tactics of how to get there, but the important thing is that that’s our goal and that’s where we keep our focus.”
