Trump Declares That The Democrats Are The ‘Anti-Jewish Party’

March 8, 2019 10:26 a.m.

President Donald Trump commented on the debate surrounding the comments of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) Friday, labeling Democrats as the “anti-Jewish party.”

“I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful because it has become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party, the anti-Jewish party,” Trump said of the resolution against hate passed Thursday. “I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer. If you get an honest answer from politicians, they thought it was a disgrace. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party and anti-Jewish party and that’s too bad.”

Trump himself has earned recriminations of anti-Semitism before, when he accused liberal donor George Soros of funding a caravan of immigrants and said that there were “fine people on both sides” of the Charlottesville clash involving white supremacists who yelled “Jews will not replace us.”
