The battle over aid to Israel continues to heat up in Washington. While President Biden has proposed a $105 billion package that would distribute aid to Israel, Ukraine and other corners of the world, Mike Johnson, the newly-elected Republican House Speaker, has put forth a package that only addresses aid to Israel.

Karoun Demirjian, a congressional correspondent in The Times’s Washington bureau, gives Lulu Garcia-Navarro an update on the state of the aid package, and describes the scene from a divided D.C.

The Israel-Hamas war is evolving by the minute. To help bring you the most up-to-date developments, we’ve begun “The Headlines: War Briefing,” where you’ll hear the latest from our correspondents on the ground every afternoon. Hosted by Lulu Garcia-Navarro.
