White House Promotes Biden Official Who Attacked Police and Supports the Anti-Israel Movement

(UnitedHeadlines.com) – The Biden administration’s controversial former Interior Department communications director, Tyler Cherry, has been promoted to an associate communications director at the White House.

The controversy involving Cherry began in 2023 when social media posts surfaced of him promoting “Russiagate,” attacking Republicans, supporting the anti-Israel movement, and criticizing the police. In one old post from Thanksgiving 2014, Cherry even accused his family of being racist.

In a 2014 post on Twitter, Cherry posted his support for Palestine, writing “Cheersing in bars,” when Hamas launched rockets into Israel, which sparked a forceful response involving airstrikes and a ground invasion. In one old post, Cherry voiced his support for anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour, who helped organize the women’s march protests against the Trump administration.

In a post from 2015 after the death of Freddie Gray, a black man who died in Baltimore while in police custody, Cherry wrote that he was “praying even harder for an end to a capitalistic police state,” which he claimed was “motivated by explicit and implicit racial biases.” In a few other posts, Cherry referred to police as the modern-day equivalent of “slave patrols and lynch mobs.”

In 2017, Cherry wrote that Republicans focus on “white grievance politics.” In another post, he said because of its white population, Iowa should not be the first presidential primary state. He also called for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be abolished in a 2018 post.

Since the announcement of his promotion, the old tweets have again resurfaced. Cherry responded to the old posts in a June 23 post on Twitter, where he stated that his previous posts do not reflect his current views. Cherry, who worked for three years at the Department of the Interior, deleted his previous posts.

Despite the controversy surrounding Cherry, White House Senior Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates stated, “We’re very proud to have Tyler on the team.”
