On Monday, when another reporter followed up reiterating Karl's original question, Sanders declined to comment on whether the president actually accused Democrats of hating Jews. "Democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn specific comments and have refused to do that". Acosta began an infamous spat about the caravan with Trump during a November briefing that resulted in the White House's temporarily pulling his press credentials.

Trump told reporters on March 8 that Democrats have now become "an anti-Israel party, they've become an anti-Jewish party" after Omar-a Somalia-born Muslim-sparked fresh criticism for questioning why US lawmakers support Israel.

The former vice president was concerned about the Trump administration taking too hard of a line toward US allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance and also inquired why the president chose to withdraw troops from Syria during what Cheney called 'the middle of a phone call'.

"This is something he did during his time in the White House", Reid responded.

"The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party".

The president also told GOP donors during an event at Mar-a-Lago on Friday that "the Democrats hate Jewish people", according to Axios.

Overall, she said it was not an experience she would like to repeat. " You don't want to live that twice ", she said. Chauvin said she wasn't aware of any injuries but believes one person may have felt unwell after exiting.

Top Democrat in the Senate, minority Leader Chuck Schumer said over the weekend that the president has "redefined chutzpah" by issuing a hypocritical declaration against the Democratic party, of which many US Jews are supporters.

"Do you think that the president has thought at all going into this 2020 campaign that the rhetoric just needs to be lowered, whether it's talking about Democrats, the media, immigrants", Acosta continued, "or should we just plan on hearing the president use the same kind of language we heard in 2016 and all through the first couple of years of his administration?" "Democrats don't hate Jewish people".

"The president has been an unwavering and committed ally to Israel and the Jewish people and, frankly, the remarks that have been made by a number of Democrats and failed to be called out by Democrat leadership is frankly abhorrent and it's sad", she said.

And pressed by CNN's Jim Acosta on Trump's own claim of "very fine people" on both sides in response to white nationalist deadly violence in Virginia in 2017, where some protesters chanted "Jews will not replace us", Sanders insisted he'd "been very clear and consistently and repeatedly condemned hatred, bigotry, racism in all of its forms".

"Just to get back to John and the question about the president's comments about Democrats and Jewish people, isn't that kind of rhetoric just sort of beneath everybody?" "I think that is a great shame", Sanders said.
