During a Monday interview on Fox Business Network's "The Evening Edit," U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) accused President Joe Biden of "riding the fence" when it comes to Israel's ongoing war with Hamas.

Tuberville was asked about the Biden administration reportedly putting a hold on a shipment of U.S.-made ammunition going to Israel, the first time since the October attack that the United States has halted a weapons shipment intended to support the Israeli military.

Alabama's senior U.S. Senator said Biden was "trying to play both sides" to make the pro-Palestine protesters happy.

"He's riding the fence; he's trying to play both sides," Tuberville replied. "We can see what's going on in our country with all the protests."

"But this is Israel's war. This is Israel versus Hamas. This has nothing to do with the United States," he added.

In the Fox Business Network appearance, Tuberville also called on Hamas to free the hostages.

"People forget: there's American hostages in this group, so we need to be standing beside Israel, not playing both sides of the fence like this administration has done for the last four, five, six, seven months," he declared.
