Former US President and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has openly declared his support for Israel's military actions in Gaza.

This statement, made during a Fox News interview on Tuesday, represents his clearest position yet on the ongoing conflict, amidst mounting international pressure on the United States to urge its close ally to cease hostilities.

When asked whether he stands "with Israel," Trump affirmed with a straightforward "yes." 

Further questioned about his approval of Israel's methods in Gaza, he responded, "You have to finish the problem."

President Joe Biden, likely Trump's opponent in the upcoming November presidential election, faces international and Democratic base criticism for his support of Israel.

This comes as civilian casualties in Gaza rise and the region faces the threat of famine.

Protests in the US are encouraging voters to hold Biden accountable at the polls for his stance on Israel, as reported by Agence France-Presse.

Over 100,000 Michigan Democrats chose to vote "uncommitted" instead of supporting Biden in the state's primary last week, reflecting growing dissatisfaction.

As the humanitarian situation in Gaza worsens, the current US administration is intensifying its efforts to press Israel for a ceasefire agreement before Ramadan and the release of hostages held by Hamas.
