Trump Enrages Left by Saying This About Israel and the Democratic Party

Former President Donald Trump accused Democrats of being willing to compromise Israel's interests for votes, asserting that Jewish people supporting Democrats are betraying their faith and Israel.

Trump spoke to Sebastian Gorka, a former White House aide and current talk show host, on Monday. Gorka brought up Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's recent criticism of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Could you explain why this administration, including Chuck Schumer, seems to harbor such animosity towards the man Israel chose as their prime minister?” Gorka queried Trump. “Why do Democrats dislike Bibi Netanyahu?”

“I actually believe they dislike Israel. I don’t think it's just dislike... I think they dislike Israel,” Trump responded. “And the Democratic party dislikes Israel.”

“And the Democratic party, remember when many Israeli representatives, including Netanyahu, came to the country, imploring, pleading with then-President Obama, ‘Please don’t enter into the Iran nuclear deal,’ which was and remains a disaster,” Trump remarked.

“But I truly think they dislike Israel, and they also see a lot of potential votes,” Trump continued.

“Let’s not forget, during those Palestinian protests, even I — I’m astounded by the turnout at those protests. And individuals like Schumer notice that, and to him, it’s about votes. I believe it’s primarily about votes because he used to be pro-Israel. Now he’s very anti-Israel,” Trump asserted.

Trump argued that Jewish voters supporting the Biden administration are endorsing policies detrimental to Israel.

“Any Jewish individual voting for Democrats despises their religion. They detest everything related to Israel, and they should feel ashamed because Israel would be in peril. Iran is now pursuing a nuclear weapon. None of this would have happened under my leadership. That’s a significant issue,” he stated.

“There’s no excuse for promoting toxic, false stereotypes that endanger fellow citizens,” said White House representative Andrew Bates, as reported by The New York Times.

Trump's remarks were characterized as “repulsive and unhinged anti-Semitic rhetoric” by Bates.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, denounced the comments as “slanderous and blatantly untrue” for accusing Jews of rejecting their religion based on their political affiliation.

Schumer condemned Trump’s statements as “partisan and hateful diatribes.”

Karoline Leavitt, national press secretary for the Trump campaign, labeled the Democratic Party as “anti-Semitic,” according to Newsweek.

“The Biden Administration has provided substantial aid to Gaza and the Iranian Regime, Democrats in Congress have endorsed Gaza militants and capitulated to Far-Left Palestinian radicals, and Chuck Schumer recently called for new elections in Israel amidst their defense against attacks on Oct. 7,” Leavitt remarked.

“President Trump is correct — the Democratic Party has become an anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist faction,” she concluded.
