He said Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats are "being very disloyal to Jewish people and. being very disloyal to Israel and only weak people would say anything other than that".

Most recently, Trump has focused these efforts on trying to paint Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib as the face of the Democratic Party.

TRUMP: So I have been responsible for a lot of great things for Israel.

"In my opinion, if you vote for a Democrat you're being very disloyal to Jewish people and you're being very disloyal to Israel and only weak people would say anything other than that", Trump said.

President Trump jokingly told a group of veterans Wednesday that he wanted to award himself a Medal of Honor, but said his aides convinced him otherwise.

"Literally, it's hard to think of something less kosher than telling the Jewish people you're the king of Israel".

Jewish groups in statements said Trump's remarks were "dangerous", "divisive" and displayed "textbook antisemitism".

Zeldin's comments were in response to backlash at Trump after his criticizm of Jewish-Americans who vote for Democratic candidates at the White House on August 20. Proof came less than 24 hours after his Oval Office disgrace when he retweeted a notorious conspiracy theorist's claim that Israelis regard Trump as "the second coming of God".

On a day when he also accused Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen of being "nasty" and derided Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell as akin to "a golfer who can't putt", Trump was in similarly combative mood over the negative reaction to his comments about Jews and the Democratic Party. And as always, if any of these comments makes you laugh, consider following whoever wrote them on the cursed catastrophe that is Twitter. At the time, Root claimed he was "personally requested" to speak by the President.

The growing influence of Islam is behind an increasingly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel sentiment in the Democratic Party, a Republican congressman contends. They have been vocal critics of Israel and Israeli policy toward Palestinians. In addition, Jewish voters continue to overwhelmingly oppose Trump and appear to be linking Netanyahu to the president.

On Sunday he had confirmed his interest in the project was serious - the country a desirable "real estate deal" because of its natural resources and geopolitical significance - saying: "Strategically it's interesting and we'd be interested, but we'll talk to them a little bit". (It should be noted that they were eventually exonerated of the crime.) The wording meant that Trump could exploit the risky anger people felt about the attack, but in an indirect way. "I don't know what that is, but we need to get behind him and support him".

"His grandchildren, his daughter, his son-in-law are Jewish", said Zeldin.

"Look, the Democrats have shown with their words and actions over the last several years that they are taking Jews and their support totally for granted", Pipko said in an earlier interview. According to their website, The Exodus Movement is comprised of "proud Jewish Americans who reject the hypocrisy, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism of the rising far-left".
