President Trump told a group of Republican National Committee donors on Friday night that he didn’t understand how any Jewish person could vote for a Democrat because he claimed “Democrats hate Jewish people,” Axios reported on Sunday citing three unnamed sources who heard Trump’s comments.
While speaking to the group of RNC donors at Mar-a-Lago, Trump said that he’d poll at 98 percent if he ran to be Israel’s next prime minister.
Trump went off on what one guest described as a “bizarre tangent.”
He complained to donors about being home alone in the White House over Christmas “while the Democrats were in Hawaii.”
Trump recalled opening his curtain to look at Secret Service agents swarming the White House lawn. “They’re in the trees, on the lawn,” he said.
“They’re in blackface,” Trump added, jokingly referring to seeing agents wearing night vision goggles.
Trump joked that the agents were “in blackface” because of the masks so maybe “they have to take them away,” according to two sources who were there
“To prevent leaks from Trump’s Friday night Mar-a-Lago speech to RNC donors, security guards made attendees put their cellphones in magnetized pouches that they carried around like purses until they left the club,” Axios reported.
Florida Gov. Rick De Santis (R) and the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., were reportedly among the attendees.
