“If I ran in the Israeli elections, I would win 98% of the vote,” US President Donald Trump said at a closed conference with donors to the Republican Party in Florida over the weekend, according to AXIOS.
Trump also attacked the Democratic Party, saying that they “hate Jews, I don’t at all understand how Jews vote for the Democratic Party.”
Trump also discussed things he had done for Israel, including how he moved the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Last Friday, Trump called Democrats “anti-Israel” and “anti-Jewish” after the House of Representatives passed a resolution denouncing antisemitism after three days of intense arguments.
The resolution was written after Congresswoman Ilhan Omar said that lobbyists for Israel are “loyal to another country,” which is similar to an antisemitic trope on the “dual loyalty” of Jews.
The final draft of the resolution was expanded to include “Islamophobia, racism, and other forms of bigotry.”
