Biden is hitting the reset button with Israel
Aaron David Miller writes that President Joe Biden’s delay in calling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is surely a calculated effort to demonstrate that there will be no return to the Israel-centric policies of the Donald Trump years. And while Israel will remain America’s closest ally in the Middle East, Biden is planning a reset.

It’s crystal clear that the personnel are largely the same, at least when it comes to foreign policy. As Jackson Diehl in The Washington Post put it just before the inauguration, “If personnel is policy, a full-on revival of Obamaism might seem likely. Secretary of state nominee Antony Blinken and deputy Wendy Sherman; national security adviser nominee Jake Sullivan and deputy Jon Finer; director of national intelligence nominee Avril D. Haines and CIA director-designate William J. Burns were all senior officials under Obama, while defense secretary nominee Lloyd J. Austin III headed the Pentagon’s Middle East command. Almost every other top official so far nominated for State and Defense Department roles is an Obama veteran.”
The HillTuesday’s event will kick off Biden’s first major political trip outside of Washington since he became president. On Thursday, he’ll head to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he’s scheduled to tour a Pfizer manufacturing facility that’s producing the COVID-19 vaccine and meet with workers there.
In the election, Biden took both Wisconsin and Michigan, two swing states won by President Donald Trump five years ago.
