Trump says Jews disloyal if they vote for Democrats

President Donald Trump criticized Jewish Americans who vote for Democrats, saying "it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty."

Trump was speaking to the press in the Oval Office about two Democratic congresswomen barred from entering Israel over their involvement in the movement to end international support for the country because of its policies toward Palestinians.

"Five years ago, the concept of even talking about this — even three years ago — of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people — I can't believe we're even having this conversation," Trump added. "Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they're defending these two people over the State of Israel?"
He added, "I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat — it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty."

CNN's Brianna Keilar speaks to Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch about Trump's incendiary remarks.

  1. If it were anyone else saying this about the Jewish people,Republicans would be screaming anti Semitism

    1. @Warmly Calculated I realized it when Watergate happened, but OK.

      The fact that the Republican administrations have 90 times as many convicted felons as the Democrats since Eisenhower, should also be a red flag.

    2. @michaelthemovieman OK, i’m so confused why is everyone so bent out of shape on people standing by Israel when they do NOTHING FOR THE U.S. Tell me one reason to call someone anti when they are calling out injustices against people (Israel) who believe (Palestine) others do not have any right to a homeland and they should control all the land? Does this sound familiar? To me this discussion is not about the rights of a people being oppressed it’s about loyalty to a party to a fault. So I would think you agree with 45 for saying “if a Jewish person votes democratic they are uninformed and disloyal”.

    1. Watch @ 14 :50 to about 20 minutes, and tell me in that entire context if he said neo nazis were wonderful people. He said no such thing. There were idiots and instigators on both sides, and there were sincere people on both sides as well. He was not condoning white supremacy on national TV. Trump may be idiotic about _a lot_ of things, but the media _completely_ twisted his words at this press conference and yall just believe it because ‘orange man bad’

    2. @Robot Police You are center right? Hate to see how extreme rightists feel! After your “Nazis” just happened to be the ones that got to the unfortunate ones, could have been anybody who “mistreated and executed” and Nazis just happened to be there first comment you go off the rails. The “crop is not country” nonsense reminds me of the ramblings of POSUS when HE goes off the rails. Native Americans wonder how we got so many Christians here, too. I must admit the second half of your comment I find confusing. Heil tRUMP!

    1. Our Earth inhabitants ought to be planting trees where they used to be while rain is still happening.But we have world leaders who like shortages of resources so they can play god with their money and illusion of power. They are trying to pretend Bernie isn’t happening because it would hurt their personal wealth to actually be a democracy .Democracy implies an egalitarian society and ours has endangered the eagle instead. I heard the eagle is reviving,and its favorite meal is Fat Cats

    1. Tony Jackson

      No, that would be very silly and counter productive. Do you really believe half the country is racist? (Obviously not literally half). Come on now Tony I doubt you believe that’s the case.

  2. This from the guy who said people carrying torches and chanting “Jews will not replace us” were also very fine people….let that sink in.

    1. @jameslock1 Oh he equivocated. He got burned up BECAUSE he refused to denounce them unequivocally. Never once have I heard the man denounce White Supremacy and unequivocally state that racism and bigotry are unacceptable. This is because he’s a racist, a bigot, and relies on white supremacists for support.

  3. Trump may have historically low approval numbers, but it is perplexing that his numbers are as high as they are, considering his overall incompetence and painful idiocy.

    1. Hes meant to be there to show us how many people are gullible to the most outrageous things and sure thing you see idiocracy going on

      Either way both sides need to just work together and stop talking bout trump.. trump is not news to us he does the same stuff different day

    2. @michaelthemovieman They only won by the largest vote total margin in history. Sorry no alternative facts here.

    3. @Jerry Guerra Spoken by a Democrat who works in nothing BUT alternative facts. Besides, your beloved Liberal-fellating CNN said that, so thank you for confirming that they are indeed fake news that shill for the DNC.

  4. Rep. Tlab and Rep. Omar their remarks were about the right wing government, the President’s remarks were directed at the religion.

    1. @Jacob Rosenberg

      Mr Hamas is the one who start revolution by his terrorist people and Israël is defending themselves by replying other bombs on Palestine, Gaza Strip and the Palestinian people complain of Israël committing crimes agaist humanity, but it started some how by mr Hamas who is like Mrs Tlaib and Mrs Omar who are anti-semite, anti Jews of Isrël and all over the USA!!!

    2. @ragingbull alf I did not say Trump was doing the praying! Rather, millions are praying that he makes the correct decision about everything – even if that means despite himself!

    3. @Grenade Gaelic 👄He’s Right!!! Listen to what THEY actually said and NOT why trump wrongfully insists they said!!!

  5. The statements made by James Comey of Trump asking him for a “loyalty pledge ” definitely rings true, especially when he uses terms like Disloyalty, now lodged against any Jews who doesn’t support him!

  6. The American people should love and loyal to their country,not particular party.That is what make it “Great”.

    1. You are espousing very old-fashioned ideas….. country, patriotism, hard work, self-reliance…. And will be attacked for it I’m sure

    2. To be fair, that’s applicable to anywhere. The Country always comes First, not Party – and love for one’s country must also be ever vigilant against poisonous Nationalism. America seems to have failed with both of these concepts.

  7. Any man or woman of the Jewish faith who dose not vote for this ignorant thing that is currently in the WHITE House I would consider WISE AND JUST.

  8. Trump always blame somebody but something he did today Trump blames the Jews I’m just surprised he didn’t blame Obama or Hillary🤣😂🤣

  9. Funny how when Trump took office, he was deriding the politicians for being intimidated and controlled by the NRA. Now look at him. Unbelievable hypocrisy and spineless

  10. There are a significant number of voters who would vote for this lunatic again. American zombies.

    1. So let’s be careful about everything we say in case an extremist take them the wrong way, right? I mean, snowflakes are well known for being self-critical and acting carefully when approaching or speaking of conservatives, right? Ridiculous

    2. Trump is such an evil dickwad. He’s unbelievably bad. With Bush the Republicans “elected” (purportedly) a drunken moron, but this time they “elected” (purportedly) an actual Villain!

  11. Sadly many Jews did vote for him. Why would you vote for someone who said white nationalists were fine people who marched like the klan screaming “Jews will not replace us?”
