[Ed. – No, he really did pat his own back. Said it was due to his different negotiating approach. Of course, Joe Biden Actual didn’t do anything to bring it about (nor did his negotiators, such as they were, have anything meaningful to do with it).]
President Joe Biden celebrated the announcement of a ceasefire between the Israelis and Hamas on Friday, noting he achieved peace quicker than former President Barack Obama did in 2014.
Biden attributed his success to a difference in negotiating tactics.
“One of the reasons why we were able to get the ceasefire in 11 days is we didn’t do what other people had done,” Biden said. “I don’t talk about what I tell people in private. I don’t talk about what we negotiate in private.”
Biden noted that the last time hostilities broke out in Israel, during Obama’s watch, it took 56 days and six months to negotiate a ceasefire.
