Trump Clarifies: Jews Who Vote Democratic Are Being Disloyal to Jewish People and Israel, not U.S.

-

Jews who vote for the Democratic party are being disloyal to their own people and Israel, not the United States, President Trump said Wednesday.

The president clarified his remarks after it was widely suggested that the president had engaged in an antisemitic trope by suggesting that American Jews were disloyal to their country.

But on Wednesday, he said:

“If you vote for a Democrat, you’re being disloyal to Jewish people and you’re being very disloyal to Israel.”

In the past, Trump has expressed his frustration that more Jews are not voting for the Republican party, despite his warm relations with Israel and the leftward turn of the Democratic party.
