President Donald Trump said Republicans are “waiting with open-arms” for Jewish people who are leaving the Democratic Party because of “total disrespect.”
Trump once again touted “Jexodus” – a movement encouraging Jewish voters to dump the Democratic Party.
His comments came in a Friday morning tweet.
The president wrote: “The ‘Jexodus’ movement encourages Jewish people to leave the Democrat Party. Total disrespect! Republicans are waiting with open arms. Remember Jerusalem (U.S. Embassy) and the horrible Iran Nuclear Deal!”
Democrats have faced a backlash following comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. Many believed the comments to be anti-Semitic.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted a quote from Elizabeth Pipko of Jexodus, saying: “There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.”
