President Donald Trump made it explicit.

Doubling down on his earlier Oval Office comments, Trump asserted on Wednesday that American Jews who vote for Democrats are “being very disloyal to Jewish people” and “to Israel.”

“Only weak people would say anything other than that,” he told reporters as he was leaving the White House.

The comments come as he has continued to lob accusations of anti-Semitism at members of “the squad” soon after he helped get Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) (temporarily) barred from Israel.

Trump has already garnered accusations of anti-Semitism for promoting these ideas.
