Senior US Senator Schumer calls on fellow Democrats to attend Netanyahu speech

Leading Democratic Senator Charles Schumer called on his fellow Democrats on Thursday to attend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech in Congress next month, saying the Israel-US relationship should “transcend” any political differences.

“It’s always been a bipartisan policy,” Schumer said of the US-Israel relationship. “Democrats and Republicans have always worked together on it, we ought to keep it that way.”

Some Democrats, including Vice President Joe Biden, have said they will not attend the speech.
