Jewish Groups Rip Trump For ‘Disgusting’ Anti-Semitic Disloyalty Remarks





President Donald Trump came under heavy criticism on Tuesday after he called American Jews who vote for Democrats either ignorant or disloyal.

“I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty,” Trump said from the Oval Office during a White House pool spray Tuesday afternoon.

The Pew Research Center found that 79 percent of Jewish Americans voted Democratic in their local House race during the 2018 midterms. In 2016, 71 percent voted for Hillary Clinton, compared to 24 percent for Trump.



“This is a disgusting comment that indicates Trump has no idea why many of us have been so sickened by the anti-Semitism of Omar & Tlaib,” Philip Klein, executive editor of the Washington Examiner — a conservative magazine — wrote on Twitter.
