Trump Tells American Jews That Netanyahu Is ‘Your Prime Minister,’ Gets Drowned Out By Protesters





Seconds into President Trump’s off-the-rails speech at the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC), Trump was drowned out by protesters from a progressive Jewish organization.

“Jews are here to say Occupation is a plague. Jews are here to say white nationalism is a plague,” the protesters said according to a statement from the progressive Jewish organization IfNotNow.

RJC participants responded by booing them and then chanting “USA” and “Four more years.”

“He’s going back home to mommy and he will be reprimanded,” Trump said, apparently referring to one of the protesters.



The protesters said in the statement that they believe President Trump’s agenda is contrary to Jewish values.

“RJC’s embrace of Trump and Netanyahu goes against the Jewish moral tradition by giving political cover to their racist, violent agendas — which are a threat to people around the world and to the future of the American Jewish community,” they said.



Later in his speech, Trump told audience members that Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu is their prime minister.

While discussing a meeting he had at the White House with Netanyahu in which he made the controversial decision to “recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights,” Trump told the audience he “stood with your prime minister.”

Trump also took a jab at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

“A special thanks to Representative Omar of Minnesota,” he said, prompting boos from the audience.

“Oh, I forgot. She doesn’t like Israel, I forgot, I’m sorry,” the president said. “No, she doesn’t like Israel, does she? Please, I apologize.”
