From The Hill
Jewish groups condemned President Trump’s Tuesday remarks calling American Jews who vote for Democrats disloyal.
The groups said that the president’s Oval Office comment wrongly suggests Jews have a dual loyalty claim to Israel and plays on anti-Semitic tropes.
“This is yet another example of Donald Trump continuing to weaponize and politicize anti-Semitism. At a time when anti-Semitic incidents have increased — due to the president’s emboldening of white nationalism — Trump is repeating an anti-Semitic trope,” said Halie Soifer, the Jewish Democratic Council of America’s executive director.
Trump had earlier said, “I think Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.”
