Hillary Clinton found herself in a heated exchange with a heckler during a panel discussion at the Institute of Global Politics at Columbia University. The heckler confronted Clinton, demanding that she denounce President Biden’s recent speech, which he deemed “warmongering.” In his speech, President Biden outlined plans to allocate $105 billion for security aid to Israel, Taiwan, and Ukraine, in response to various global challenges.
Clinton responded by stating that the heckler’s approach was not conducive to a meaningful conversation and offered to speak with him after the event. The heckler expressed doubt and criticized both President Biden and Clinton, claiming that they were not representing the American people’s voices. Clinton insisted that the heckler sit down, emphasizing that it wasn’t free speech when it disrupted others’ opportunities to speak.
The exchange continued with the heckler persistently demanding that Clinton denounce President Biden’s speech as warmongering. Clinton reiterated her position that she would not do so, suggesting they conclude the conversation and meet outside. The incident showcased the division of opinion on President Biden’s policies and provided a glimpse into the ongoing political discourse.
