The White House explained how Biden views pro-Palestinian protests.

US President Joe Biden is “sympathetic” to the country’s large-scale pro-Palestinian protests and insists they remain peaceful, White House spokesman John Kirby said on Sunday.

“The President knows that the war in Gaza provokes very strong emotions. He understands and respects this. As he has stated many times, we respect the right to peacefully protest. People should be able to share their views and vision in a public space – but it must be worn peaceful in nature,” Kirby said.

He added that the US administration condemns any rhetoric aimed at inciting hatred against Jews in light of the current situation.

The campuses of prestigious American universities have in recent days become the epicenter of outrage over the Israeli operation in the Gaza Strip, with numerous civilian casualties and US assistance to its main Middle Eastern ally. The protests intensified amid US approval of a new aid package for Israel.
