During the Israeli American Council’s 2019 national summit US President Donald Trump urged the rally to vote for him, arguing that American Jews had no other “choice”.
Trump recognized and branded the crowd as “brutal killers” recalling his long-life experience from “the real estate business”.
A lot of you are in the real estate business, because I know you very well. You’re brutal killers. Not nice people at all, but you have to vote for me you have no choice.
We have to get the people of our country, of this country, to love Israel more. We have to get them to love Israel more. Because you have people that are Jewish people, that are great people – they don’t love Israel enough?
The baffling speech sparked an instant backlash. Prominent American Jewish organizations including The Jewish Democratic Council of America and the Jewish lobbying group J. Street, quickly denounced Trump’s not-so-subtle political insight as naked antisemitism.
Jewish Democratic Council Executive Director Halie Soifer stressed that Trump does not have the support of American Jews, adding that Jewish support for the Republicans dropped 50% after Trump took office because “Trump’s policies and rhetoric are completely antithetical to Jewish values?
An overwhelming majority of Jews are both pro-Israel and anti-Trump because his symbolic gestures on Israel have not made America or Israel more secure.
J. Street fired back at the US president later on Sunday, vowing to “defeat” Trump in the upcoming presidential election. We are going to work tirelessly to defeat this president and those who’ve enabled him, 11 months from now.
Gemal Abdul Nasser of Egypt on the record stated that according to Pharoah’s records, 5000 years ago that these gypsy tribes left Egypt as black people, but they returned to Israel in 1948 as white people?
However Jewish Democratic members of Congress have also expressed the view that American voters must not be allowed to re-elected President Trump in 2020.
Oh, Trump, you have done it again! He sounds twice as smart when he says half as much!
