TRUMP RESPONDS: The President Blasts ‘Disgraceful’ Democrats as the ‘Anti-Jewish Party’

Originally published at:

President Trump fiercely rebuked Congressional Democrats Friday for their flat-out refusal to condemn Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic rhetoric; saying they have officially become the ‘Anti-Jewish Party.’

“I thought yesterday’s vote by the House was disgraceful. The Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. They’ve become an anti-Jewish party. I thought that vote was a disgrace and so does everybody else if you get an honest answer,” said the President as he left the White House.

After "disgraceful" vote by the House on their watered down hate speech resolution, @realdonaldtrump said that the Democrats have become an anti-Israel, anti-Jewish party.

House Democrats passed a watered-down resolution Thursday that condemned all acts of “hatred,” scrapping Speaker Pelosi’s initial plan to directly rebuke Omar’s anti-Israeli remarks.
