President Donald Trump has said that American Jewish people who vote for Democrats show “either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” which has prompted a quick uproar from those who say that this statement is embracing anti-Semitic stereotypes.
“Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they are defending these two people over the state of Israel?” Trump told reporters, “I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
While the statement could be interpreted to be supporting anti-Semitic stereotypes, this is clearly not the case and not the point Trump was trying to make. The Democrats have elected people like Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar, who recently wanted to travel to Israel so they could meet with groups that support terrorism in Israel and neo-Nazis, and who support the destruction of Israel. Radicals like these have recently brought popularity to cutting off aid to Israel and supporting Palestine in their attempts to destroy Israel in the Democratic party.
President Trump is probably the least anti-Semitic President in history. Israel has even named a settlement after President Trump called “Ramat Trump,” which is Hebrew for “Trump Heights.” The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called President Trump a “great friend” of Israel.
I agree with President Trump, as I can never understand why the Jewish people in America would support a political party that uses the same language and propaganda as Hitler and the same subversive tactics against the United States as Stalin used against his own country of Russia.
