After two days of reaffirming America’s steadfast alliance with Israel, President Joe Biden on Friday will turn his attention to the plight of the Palestinians, though he has already acknowledged he can’t give them what they want.

Shortly after arriving in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, Biden said he still supports the creation of an independent Palestinian nation alongside Israel but knows that won’t happen any time soon.

Instead, Biden visited a Palestinian hospital in East Jerusalem where he announced humanitarian assistance and will meet in Bethlehem with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
