In her address, Sarsour said “the Democratic Party is not perfect, but it is absolutely our party in this moment.”
Thee Democratic National Convention did not respond to a request for comment.
Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates told CNN, “Joe Biden has been a strong supporter of Israel and a vehement opponent of anti-Semitism his entire life, and he obviously condemns her views and opposes BDS, as does the Democratic platform.”
