President Joe Biden said over the weekend that a ceasefire in the ongoing war in Gaza would be possible "tomorrow” if Hamas released the hostages.

The terrorist group has reportedly held 128 hostages since its Oct. 7 attack on Israel. 

"There would be a ceasefire tomorrow if Hamas would release the hostages," Biden said during a fundraiser near Seattle, Wash. on Saturday.

"Israel said it’s up to Hamas; if they wanted to do it, we could end it tomorrow. And the ceasefire would begin tomorrow," Biden added.
