Trump decries 'great disloyalty' of Jews who vote for Democrats

President Trump on Tuesday continued his attacks on Palestinian American lawmaker Rashida Tlaib, mocking her tears from the day before when she bitterly recalled Israeli security's treatment of her family on visits to her ancestral homeland in the occupied territories.

On Tuesday, President Trump said he doubted her sincerity during that news conference.

Trump first made remarks on Twitter, writing, "Sorry, I don't buy Rep. Tlaib's tears". "I have watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long".

Tlaib tweeted that she wouldn't allow Israel to use her love for her grandmother to force her to "bow down to their oppressive & racist policies". She is an anti-Semite. Jill Biden was either saying the quiet part out loud or committing a Michael Kinsley gaffe (that is, speaking the truth) when she suggested that her husband needs the support of voters who prefer other Democratic candidates.

"Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are the face of the Democratic Party and their anti-Semitic comments, their anti-Semitic social media posts, their anti-Semitic relationships, should be condemned on all levels", he said.

Both Omar and Tlaib are fierce critics of Israel's policies regarding Palestinians, and both support the Boycott, Diversify and Sanctions movement, which seeks an economic boycott and other penalties against the Jewish State, a key USA ally. Later on, Israel's Interior Minister Aryeh Deri lifted the ban on Tlaib, who promptly rejected the offer. "And, that's what the BDS movement does". I have nothing to do with it, but I don't blame [Israel] for doing what they did. Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu cited the rhetoric in a statement released following the travel restrictions issued against the two women.

"She could see her grandmother, they gave her permission to see her grandmother, but she grandstanded and she didn't want to do it", Trump added.

"Twenty percent of the population of Israel are Muslim", Gidley stated.

"I can't imagine if [Omar] has any Jewish people in her district that they could possibly vote for", Trump said.

In CNN video of the gaggle with reporters at Morristown Airport, Trump said "Fox is a lot different than it used to be" and reiterated his disappointment with the network for giving air time to the Democratic candidates and Fox News political analysts Juan Williams and Donna Brazile. "That is complete garbage and it's disingenuous", she said.
